Firstly, the new trailhead starts about half a mile back on Diamond Point Road at the state park parking lot. All Trails' driving directions will take you to a locked gate, so turn around and head back from there.

There are many new trails now - we took Trailhead Loop to Diamond Point Trail to Aerospace Road to Discovery Trail because it looked like there would be a viewpoint. Wrong. Next time we'll go up to the Beach Trail.

If you want to follow All Trails' trail map, it starts at the intersection of Fireweed Road and Aerospace Road.

Forest seems mostly like new growth with a lot of ground cover, but it was still a beautiful hike.

Very easy for the beginner hiker. Walked it 02-27-16, there are now posted maps at ever trail split, so it is very easy to follow.

Beautiful hike through the woods! The trail is very straightforward, though the spit is a little further down from where the trail meets the beach than I wanted to hike. The beach is very rocky and slow to walk on and we were low on time, so we didn't go that far down the beach. Also, we ran into only two other groups on the whole hike. It felt very lonesome and isolated, but wonderful.

Beautiful trail, the previous reviewer is very accurate in needing a map or GPS, SEVERAL off trails that could get confusing to anyone who hasn't hiked the path before.

Pleasant trail thru the woods to the beach... a map or GPS would be good to have unless you are local as there are many offtrails on the route and in the area
