|The left-hand picture is what the start of the trail looks like at The Baths: you squeeze through a narrow gap between huge boulders, then navigate a meandering route through the boulder field. This is what a nearby sign has to say about the Devil's Bay Trail: "Approximately twenty minutes away at the end of this short but challenging trail lies the beautiful beach Devil's Bay. The trail winds over, under and around huge granite boulders which were once imbedded in volcanic lava. The same weathering process which wore away the softer lava rock has also carved huge dishes and holes in the remaining hard granite boulders. Other interesting natural features along the trail are the famous salt water grottos and ponds. To help preserve this unique area the trail is not marked with signs. Small piles of rocks called cairns are used to show the way. In addition to careful route finding, you should be prepared to crawl, climb ladders, wade through water, and closely supervise small children. Please pack out your garbage."
The right-hand picture is what the other end of the trail looks like as it emerges from the boulders and approaches the beach at Devil's Bay. The two people are heading the other way, back to The Baths. Click on the right-hand picture to see a bigger version; use your browser's "back" command to return here.
