Beautiful hike! We took Santa Lucia to the bridge, enjoyed water and tranquility, then took the dirt road back. Definitely seemed like a great way to see it all. We will definitely be back with friends to enjoy the beach. Also of note we’re the beautiful fall colors down in the gorge.

Beautiful hike! Great views of the river and valley. Hard to follow the trail on the way down though.
