Lovely trail through a rainforest to a cove and beach. I would say it’s actually easy (just one short steep climb), but is not friendly for disabled people due to that steep section. Very kid and dog friendly. Just a lovely lovely area. Combine a few of the trails here and make a whole day of it.

really good trail. easy, very dog friendly, very beautiful, lots of shade, beautiful bridges and little streams, the beach it leads out to is beautiful if you have never been. only downside is lots of Spurs and forks so be careful. highly recommended.

Enjoyable simple trail that ends up at the beach near Trinidad, Took a few photos but not of the beach. I got distracted throwing a stick in the surf for my lab, Brook,... Nice little stream and a couple of bridges. Way too many spur trails along the way, Found two couples a bit lost due to the confusing spurs along the trail.
