We started the larger Shellaligan loop trail around 9:30 from the end closest to Valdez road in order to time our lunch later on the rock outcrop overlooking the ocean. This is a beautiful hike through big forest and ferns and then along the ocean front with expansive views. Just past the unique tree with all the uniform holes that circle its circumference we could see a portion of new dock at the old oyster farm where people were working. We had the benefit of watching hump backs during lunch. The hike was leisurely and with lunch was close to 3 1/2 hours.
