It's a scenic route along the beach, but it's rocky and difficult. The rocks are larger by the water and get smaller as you move farther away from the water.

I suggest hiking carefully over the larger rocks because you can see the awesome tide pools and with them, the little hermits, crabs, anemones, and beautiful colored rocks. However, the rocks are slippery, so don't go too quickly.

The day I went, there was an inordinate amount of kelp flies. Literally swarms of kelp flies and they were everywhere by the smaller rocks. Less so by the larger rocks, but I also ran into some swarms there, though not as dense. There were also so many insects that looked cockroach-like, perhaps silverfish, but they were everywhere. The flies and the bugs made the experience not to be desired. Perhaps they were rampant because I went the day after it rained, not sure.

Very pretty but go in further on down the trail past the swimming pool. Otherwise, you're basically walking in the ocean for the first 1/4 mile.

There is no path you walk along the beach. This path is all rocks. Be sure you wear hiking boots. It's hard on the knees.

Great trail! You can make it more difficult by adjusting your starting point (as seen in the map above). Otherwise, there is a large pipe you can scale down about a mile from the shipwreck. The hike itself is just walking on rocks along the shore, but how can you complain? You're at the ocean! Yes, you will see some trash, dead birds, and smell some less than lovely scents, but it's nature, guys. Bring water, sunscreen, and HIKING SHOES. It will hurt otherwise!

The trail was difficult to find. I'm not sure the start point is correct. It was basically hiking on a rocky beach or up top along road. I'm not sure why it was rated difficult either?
Shipwreck site was pretty cool.

Well being a Southbay native I had to give this one five stars! There's nothing like driving 10-15 minutes to the beach and enjoy such local beauty!

lots of walking on loose jagged rocks, make sure you wear good hiking shoes. If not its painful.
