This 1/2 mile trek sets off from picturesque Galleon Beach, linking with the area’s Naval Dockyard and defenses. We wind up at the famous Shirley Heights ”lookout”. Then we join Carpenters Rock Trail for 1 1/2 miles spiraling downhill to the Mermaid Gardens, where you will want to make sure you have your swimwear for an exciting dip in the natural pool. Dry off and finish up the hike 30 minutes later back where we started
