Lots of wildlife (many types of birds) and views of the bay. The trail is open year round and is popular with walkers and runners. It isn't paved per se, so traditional strollers wouldn't be a good idea -- the trail is mostly hard-packed dirt and gravel.
Beautiful blue water, calm and cold breeze and hot sun, fabulous long walk and sights to see at every turn.
