Went here midweek and the trail was relatively empty, as was the beach (woo!). An easy walk downhill to the water, but a moderately steep walk all the way back to the parking lot. Perfect place to take a picnic lunch. The beach is serene and beautiful.

Went on this trail on a cloudy day. It’s all down hill at first but on the way back is when you get your workout of the day that you just want to lay down on your couch and put your foot up. But, it’s beautiful, the beach was magnificent, prefer if you go on a sunny day or sunset. Overall was just a great moment with a good workout.

Decided to check out if there was any parking available in the middle of a weekday, and luckily there were a few spots. I’ve arrived later in the day before and have had to turn around because of no spots being available. This trail is taken care of really well and has a lot of great spots to picnic. Once you walk a mile you make it to the beach and the nice areas with grills and picnic tables. It’s a good one, but make it early so you can snag a spot.

The walk takes you under a canopy of very tall deciduous trees and along a creek. The view from the beach is amazing. Great for all ages but not good for strollers. The steep climb back near the parking lot gets the blood pumping.

Parking is limited. Cell phone service is spotty.

Absolutely beautiful scenery and quite a fun hike.

Carried my 1 yo on a backpack. the trail goes down hill to the beach and uphill back to the lot. You'll realize when you're half way down, you gotta climb all this on way back. It was fun, the beach and the views are fantastic. There was a sea of children of having fun by the waters.

Our family had a great time! Our 8yr old twins loved playing on the beach at the end. Next time I would pack sandwiches! Would do it again! We saw a seal and baby crabs!

I love this hike. Short and mostly all downhill at first. You get rewarded with a nice Little Rock beach area at the end. The hike up is very steep. I would not recommend for elderly or children, as I’m sure they would be too tired to go up the hill back. Short hike, fun, but steep coming up.

Awesome fun. My 3 and 4 yr old loved it! I had to pack my 3 yr old back to the parking lot in a backpack because the hill is steep and my 4 yr old was tired coming up the hill but the workout was worth it. This was a beautiful hike with a stream following the trail the entire time. Wildflowers and chirping birds. The beach was beautiful and 3 trains went by which was great fun for the kids.

Beautiful trail surrounded by tall and lush trees. The beach at the end is beautiful as well. The hike back up is VERY steep

Nice hike through the lush tree down to the beach. At the bottom there is a large picnic table with BBQ grills. The tunnel for the water out to the ocean is really cool. Can take a nice stroll along the pebble beach. Train track is a nice touch despite little noisy. Hiking back up was surprisingly tough, underestimated the 400ft elevation - steep. I would perhaps rate it as moderate instead of easy given the hike back up. Not sure the elderly in my opinion.

beautiful, easy trail with beach access and lots of greens. parking lot is small but there is plenty of parking in the nearby neighborhood.

Very nice, relaxing, clean wide trail. My twin boys (6 yrs) had a great time. They were also pleasantly surprised to be able to play in the water a little when we reached our destination at the beach. Only downside is the trek back which was uphill.

I took my dog and it was a lot of fun. The 1 mike down and 1 hike up was not super easy, and it was a busy trail (75 degrees on a Sunday). The beach was really pretty and I think we will do this one again. Also, make sure to get there somewhat early to get a parking spot or you have to find parking in the neighborhood.

Nice, close-in ravine hike to a beach head.

Quite steep, but worth it once you get down to the beach

Beautiful trail, but very steep.

Fantastic view and moderate amount of walking!

Was there several times. Easy to access; good for a half day exercise.

This trail is 1 mile downhill to the beach and 1 mile uphill from the beach. this trail is unique, I find it Harder going downhill than coming uphill on this trail. the path is wide and smooth and has benches. Beach is nice and quiet. tall trees. very nice.

This trail has an even split. it seems like 1 mile downhill to the beach and 1 mile uphill from the beach. Very unique but, I find it Harder going downhill than uphill on this trail. Beach is very nice and quiet. trail is very wide and smooth surface. there are benches for resting along the way.

The trail itself was well maintained with a great payoff once you make it to the beach. The incline on the way back up was pretty tough for our 5year old so we had to take a lot of breaks, but overall it was a great hike.

This trail had more decline/incline than I had imagined from past reviews, but a lovely hike nonetheless and a beautiful beach at the end to relax and eat lunch.

It’s a nice short trail that leads to the shore. Back trails are really nice as well. A lot of forest with occasional streams.

This is one of my favorites. The secret is out so there is a lot of traffic sometimes. Trail and destination scenery is awesome. Just try it at least once.
