Peaceful winter's day. Stairs down to the beach are very icy.

This is one of my favorite walks along the beach. It isn’t well marked but follow the shore. I didn’t make it to the lighthouse because the tide was coming in but a beautiful walk. Some rocks to get over is about the hardest it gets and they aren’t that bad.

Road to trail was closed, but I was here during the off season, in the middle of March. I just parked and we walked up the road to the park and went on our way to the trail. I brought my pup with me and he had a blast! This trail goes right on to the coast and has a beach. The trail definitely needs some TLC in the spring, but was very enjoyable to walk.

This is a great beach hike, rocky sections and beach sections; you end very near the ferry terminal and loop back.
