My daughter and I met up with my cousin. She wanted to take us to Diamond Hill a beautiful hike indeed! A bit strenuous at the top but well worth the views! Kylemore Abby on one side and the beautiful ocean on the other and fantastic mountain views as well... everything you'd want on a short hike... Be in good shape and bring water and a snack to eat at the top. Wonderful people in the visitor center eager to help with information and very clean restrooms...
