Sept. 2019. Most of the trail is nothing special. Uneven grass path through blackberry patches and occassional trees, wear hiking or running shoes. Overlook can be reached by car. Trail to the beach from the overlook is down a literal cliff with ropes to help guide you down.

Great little hike through the woods in Elk country and back on the beach. It can be done as a loop on the beach or an out and back. There is a large resident Elk herd in this area. Today they were no where to be seen but plenty of fresh tracks. The trail is signed for no dogs and the beach for dogs on leash but many have dogs off leash on this beach. At the end of the trail to go down to the the beach is a little steep but there are a couple of ropes to help you on your way. My thanks to the thoughtful people that put them there...
