A steep trail leads from the ocean to Verstovia peak. The trail starts out with some boardwalk steps and meanders through the rainforest for awhile. Then it climbs steeply with several great places to look out over the bay. I never made it all the way up becuase the snow was too deep (February). But at about the 1800 foot level is a great place to stop and take some photos.

Directions: Drive south on Sawmill Creek to Seiner's restaurant. Park at the restaurant, and look for a faint trail along the fence on the north edge of the property. Follow the fence a hundred yards or so and the trail becomes more obvious.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
