The rest of the hike goes inland. There is a 100 meter lookout trail however the fog had rolled in when we got to the top so we were unable to see anything (or take any photos).
4.3km in White Cove.
From White Cove the rest of the hike is on a gravel path that meets back at the parking.
This hike is an absolutely amazing trail. It is super easy to follow. Any of the difficult hills have stairs made for you. I would suggest at least running shoes for proper support.
Here is a short video from 1.3-2.0km. It gives you a great idea of the terrain.
