Nice scenery spliced with back and forth between forest and ocean/beach. Very nice trail indeed.

Nothing to see. Unless you are camping here and are just doing a a walk, not worth it. The path is not maintained, small portion of it is paved, and rest of it is ugly, full of weeds and partially blocked with tree branches. Also portion of it It is not accessible as it is gated off. To top it off it borders a merky and dirty lagoon. Do not do it alone. But in my opinion, do not bother. Not worthy of even being on this list of trails to do.

Great warm-up for hiking the dunes from the campground to Grand Avenue and back. That would be approximately a 3.5 mile hike when you add the round trip dune walk. You will want to keep directly on the path at the lagoon as it is cleared of the relentless poison oak. If you are walking your dogs, you might want to keep them on the path and not stray off into the poison oak that grows quite rampantly in the thimbleberry bushes, willows and oaks. This path is beautiful and you will enjoy the birdsong, geese, ducks, coots, blue heron and every once in a while the egrets that visit this lagoon. I've seen turtles lazing on floating logs, beaver, and deer in the grassy areas near the campground. This is not a private walk/hike as the lagoon is in a neighborhood and also borders a busy campground. It is beautiful none-the-less and a real treat to walk through. Very easy walking and muddy after rains.

Pleasant walk. It winds through a campground, so you're rarely isolated. There is heavy thick mud in sections of the northern end. During the walk I spotted numerous varieties of ducks and geese and also beaver.
