About The EAST BLUFF (aka Edd's Place):

See description for the Northeast Point for directions to the Lighthouse. From the lighthouse find a faint path heading southeast to the cliff edge and then turn to the right. The walk can be difficult but in general the cliff edge is the easiest walking. You will pass three square, concrete "DOS" markers along the cliff edge. Don't worry if you miss one. From the lighthouse, 20 minutes of non-stop hiking will put you in an area with no large vegetation near the bluff edge, near DOS #154. From here you can see huge boulders in the ocean 100' beyond that, and a huge buttress yet another 100' farther. You should also see a pair of palms (10' apart) standing alone and another pair of palms 80 yards beyond them. Walk to the second pair of palms where the vegetation gets really thick. From here, angle left through the vegetation to the cliff-edge (DOS #155). The climbs are 150' farther. Shade about 2 pm in mid-winter, earlier otherwise. Total approach is .7 miles and can take anywhere from 40 - 60 minutes.
