Sunset Beach Trail is a 7.5 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Inverness, California that features beautiful wild flowers. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking, walking, birding, and mountain biking.
Start at Estero trailhead and hike 2.5 miles until you come to a fork. Follow the sign to the right to the Sunset Beach trail. At this point, you'll have 1.5 more miles until the beach. This trail is a little deceiving in that most places will say it's a 3 mile in and out trail. However, the start of the trail is 2.5 miles into the Estero trail. So you can't actually start your hike at the beginning of the Sunset trail. Therefore, it's technically 7.6 miles in and back out (this milage may very depending on the time of day due to the tides).
