A nice walking trail. We prefer more aggressive trails.

I love the location. A lot of other hikers and children. Which is cool. But sometimes you just wanna get away from everyone. That won't happen on the main trails. But the side trails are pretty quiet. Will go again!

Good for kids

Great adventure for the whole family. Easy for kids. Best of both worlds. Collect shells, Catch low tide and watch the seals basking in the sun and playing in the ocean. We saw around 60 seals. Bring your binoculars to get a closer view. I have 1 complaint. We brought our dog with us for the adventure, which he loved. Maybe they could provide a pet waste bag station at the start of the trail and a disposal barrel midway down the trail and just before you enter the shore. I think it would help with people cleaning up after their pets.

Easy trail to follow until you get to the shore where having this app with the map made it clear we were going the right way! Never have I walked on the seaside as a trail. Fantastic
