A beautiful beach walk that explores both tidal ecosystems and a salt march. There is great birding habitat as well as surf to play in. Walk along the beach and return via the N Pond trail.

The beach side is gorgeous and the views are incredible. The marsh side while peaceful and quiet is over grown and has a lot of poison oak. Tried the marsh side but went back the beach side.

Keep in mind you will not see the piegeon point light house on this trail. This is simply the nearest hiking trail to the lighthouse. We wanted to do a hike since we came from SF to see the light house so this is where we went. The trail was decent. It was clean, has a cool looking foot bridge, and a nice Vista sitting area overlooking a pond with some hills in the background. However you have to cross the highway twice with no crosswalks and you can see/hear the highway in the background most of the time. Also the part through the beach should be considered optional dependent on weather. Watch out for poison oak which lined about a quarter of the trail
