Nice little trail that was built about 5-6 years ago when I lived very close to the northern end of the trail. I don't remember if dogs are allowed or not even though I did ti with mine regularly. I lived on the other side of the golf course and walked through from the house and into private land that hooked up to the trail. There is another path thats hooks up on the north end as well. Incredible views of the ocean and stairs down to the beach on the north. The beach is decent for perch, stripers in season and smelt, all of which I did there at times.
