This well maintained trail passes through an impressive cottonwood forest before reaching stunning views at the ocean. The trail is an old two track about eight feet wide with a gravel surface. There is a reroute a short distance in that may have been created to keep it from flooding. The old route is still there and accessible.

Nice, easy trail - as depicted in write-up. Wide, gravel-covered walk (lots of relatively fresh bear skat) out to water. Very nice views of the water and mountains.

It’s an easy flat trail with great views the entire way. The ocean at the end is gorgeous.
