Great part of this trail is you are so close to other areas to walk. My wife and I walked from Shell Beach to this trail and back. The central coast is beautiful with a lot to see and do!

Not strenuous at all! I usually see older folks walking this as its easy and short yet runs along the beach great wooden trail is good for strollers and walkers.
