CT Trails - Possible to hike only short distance to view point?

Jump to last reply

A question for those familiar with the CT trails... We'll be spending a bit of time in the CT in early June and for various reasons have decided we won't be doing the complete hike or longer stretches as we originally thought. We plan to visit as many of the villages as we feel like and then rent loungers and an umbrella along the beach in Monterosso.

My question is if any of the trail segments (maybe outside Vernazza or Monterosso) would offer a short portion that we could climb/hike just to a view point or a look out, take in the view from a bit higher vantage, and then head back to the town? I've heard lots of mention about stairs (and more stairs!) going into/out of Monterosso for example - if we climbed those stairs for just a bit would we be enjoying any views? Anything similar in Vernazza? Just didn't know if we should expect to have to hike at least half the trail before the views open up, etc.

Thanks in advance!

(We realize it's possible some or all of the trails could be closed.)
