This is my favorite trail. Lots of steps and beautiful forest aesthetics. This trail rewards you at the end with the beach. You can take a nutritional break on the picnic tables on the sand. It's pretty quiet there seems like people keep it like that.

One of my favorite trails to walk in because it takes you away from busy day life and engulfs you in a forest of overgrown greenery and mossy paths and trees and rich oxygen. It's quite a trek though so make sure you have good supporting shoes. Great for a good run because of hills and inclines. It takes you down to a beautiful beach secluded from the city. Great for families, kids, and dogs.

This is a great trail for beginners and avid hikers. Dogs are allowed, most people brought their dogs with them. parking on hill, trail starts pretty easy mostly going down hill, at the end is the beach. Going up hill back to the parking is a bit hard but I saw so many children can do it too. Parking are small, probably 15cars. Trail was green and at blooming season. Path is full of small rocks and well maintained. Highly recommend.

Hiked in Mar-2019. Well maintained, relatively easy, amazing beach view, wildlife discovery (birds and seals)..

Fun with kids, but the walk out can be a tad rough on super young ones. my 7year old took it, but he was a bit tired at the top. great beach!

Nice and a bit challenging for someone like me.... beautiful beach at the end of the trail.

the trail is very well maintained. The trip down to the beach is beautiful and easy, the trip back up is all uphill and a little harder. The trails allows dogs and they must be on a leash, however multiple people ignore this rule. I've taken my pitbull twice to this trail and BOTH times shes been lunged at and bitten by offleash dogs- both small Chihuahua type dogs.

Nice trail with splandid beach view. the hick back up was rewarding and not too hard on kids but yet a good workout. highly recommand it.

Live this small hike close to my house! I’ve done this hike 3 times in the last 5 months. I’m sure I will do it again this summer.

Great trail to get a little nature and a beautiful Sound view. Can be crowded but it is a neighborhood park.

Regular trail for me. Might be my favorite short trail in the area.

Love this place

Love this trail! Very well maintained. New favorite spot to walk the dog!

Reason it’s not five stars is because the parking lot is tiny. But other then that my family had a blast adventuring!

need to know high tide vs low tide to have access to the beach

Great trail, simple out and back. I wish I'd brought my hiking poles as it's a bit steep in some areas. The beach is a great reward at the bottom.

Lovely views, and beautiful trees. A little too busy for my taste, but expected. Great park for a quick workout in the dwindling January sun!

Loved how well maintained this trail is. It wasn’t muddy considering how rainy it’s been. Can’t wait to come back in the summer so my pup can play in the water. This was a very easy trail in my opinion. Perfect for a quick nature hike near the city.

One of my favorite trails, it’s well maintained. Quick and easy trail that leads to a beautiful beach. I love catching sunsets here in the summer. Super close to home.

Overall it was awesome. But I have to admit, the easy level is a lie. Going back out was extremely challenging for not just me- I saw many folks struggling breathing and carrying walking poles. I do think the level should change to moderate for that reason. But going down was easy! Lol Beautiful stunning views and well maintained trails. Overall- lovely!

Used this app a long time and enjoyed every minute

Beautiful walk. The trail is well maintained and wide enough for traffic. The creek babbles along the trail for the last 1/2 mile or so.

Great trail for getting ready for major incline hiking trails good cardio

Well worth the trip. Very limited parking. Great for dogs and children. Remember returning is uphill. Olympics view from beach is the best.

This is my go to hike. I usually hike/walk it 2 times per week. When I show up I do the hike twice for the workout. It’s a little different than most hikes. You go down for 1.1 miles to start. There are a few steep areas, but nothing too bad. The beach is a nice little reward for making it down. Porta potty at the bottom and in the upper parking lot. Noticed some kids smoking weed in the upper porta a few days ago. I told them to move on. Going up the trail is relatively easy for 1/2 mile. When you hit the hill before the stairs, be ready for your workout. As a little something different, I take the left at the bench above the stairs. It goes to the west side of the parking lot. I think it’s a little steeper than the main trail. Parking sucks at time. Many of the street areas are no Parking which makes it a bit tougher. Trail is wide and no problems passing or being passed. Friendly folks as far as I’ve seen.

This is one of my favorite hikes as it’s so close to home. Easy going in and more challenging on the way out as this is a reverse hike where the destination is downhill. Amazing views as you go through the tunnel and it opens onto the beach.

Great on the way down! Awesome beach beautiful little place for kids to play, bathrooms and a hand wash station available, saw a sea lion and lots of birds. It’s a hike on the way back since it’s all up hill, but it’s definitely a place I will be back to! Very nice for kids.

Parking was a little tight, we arrived around 12 in the afternoon, had to park a few streets up and walk, but there’s a bathroom in the parking lot and a few at the beach. Worth the trip.

One of my favorite places for an early morning hike. The beach is a relaxing mid-hike reward before the uphill return— which is definitely a calf workout! Great for a quick hike or trail running.
