    This hike was awesome! A bit challenging for a beginner but doable. The views from the top are amazing and worth it. Hike seems a lot further than it was, 3 miles to the wind turbines and 3 miles out, don’t get discouraged if you feel at every turn that you are almost there and realize you are not 😂

    Make sure you have good hiking shoes and take plenty of water. Try to avoid the heat of the day as there are no shaded areas on this hike but if you don’t mind the sun don’t forget sunscreen.

    It took me 40 mins to be able to see the top of the wind turbines (see pictures), I walked at a slow/normal pace with one little break. It’s rocky but not hard, it’s only going up but not steep. I used regular running shoes (see pictures). I’d also recommend you use some sunscreen and if you’re able to go either before sunrise/early sunrise or late afternoon as it gets a bit hot and sunny during sunny hours.
    Parking was easy when I arrived around 7am (I don’t know about later hours).
    Enjoyed it and would do it again.

    If you can, do this on a cool/windy or overcast day, will make the hike more enjoyable! If you do it from one end to the other, bring lots of water and stay hydrated as well as snacks! The view from the windmills are amazing and if you do the hike from west side by ocean, you will many more incredible views, stop and take it in!! Wear good shoes, hiking sticks if you need balance when hiking down, can have some lose rocks on the way. This is a must die those who like to hike, not for beginners, saw too many with only one bottle of water for 5-6ppl lol!! Enjoy!

    Amazing hike, and for sure not too difficult as what some reviews indicate. I would rate the difficulty 2 out of 5 stars. Note that there is no shade on the East side of the hike and that the middle section is rocky, especially while descending.

    The top, where the windmills are, has something special. The mills continuously peep, crack, and make all kinds of metal noises which gives it a unique vibe, as if you're in between the big metal giants. On a clear day you're able to see whales from a distance, which we were lucky to do.

    If possible, go early, go up East and work with someone that you're able to go downhill on the West side. That would be the most beautiful trajectory.

    This was a great trail. There was hardly any people out near sunset. The sunset from here was gorgeous!
