Dorman Point Trail continues past the picnic tables leading steeply up to a rocky bluff just 2 km away. Whytecliffe Park directly across on the mainland and the University Endowment Lands in the distance should be visible when weather conditions allow. Return the same way you came or take Robinson Road and Dorman Road to add some variation to the walk.
