Easy walk, you get two choices of scenery, each visit has been very pleasant. I have yet to walk the full trail because I tend to go for the sunset view, which is stunning from here. Top choice for sunset viewing. They have benches perfectly placed.

Lovely at dawn. The winter rains have caused wildflowers to grow over the trail in spots; there are also some gnat swarms near the oil wells. But these are minor inconveniences. Great dirt to run on!

This trail is nice & open with plenty of opportunities for photos. Lots of bird wildlife to observe. I didn't give myself enough to complete the whole route, but I'll be back soon.
Make sure to bring a jacket, the breeze right off the beach can chill.
