Beautiful walk along the beach and total relaxation with the waves in background. This is really easy, do it barefoot and make sure to walk around the rocks towards end to complete the trail/walk.

The trail is pretty much the beach so I am unsure of we can call this a "trail". We had a very enjoyable walk on the sand and if you like driftwood (like my wife) you will truly enjoy this one! We tried to find access points along the beach to the roads above and there are few that are not private property and reservation land. Still it is a beautiful beach walk and we encountered only 2 people the entire morning!

Homeless have moved off the beach... Probably just for the winter.

Went back and completed it to the mouth. Beautiful area... Be careful in the middle where the waypoint is. On the map it appears some kind of road tees to the short bluff above. There are a few homeless? camps/structures that seem to be permanent. Gave them a wide berth and had no issues. They definitely picked a pretty place to set up camp.
