This trail was very short and very easy. It was percent for a short hike to a beautiful beach. The trail is narrow so it was a little harder to walk with a dog, but not that bad. It was more of a walk than a hike. I was able to wear my flip flops on the way back because of how sandy my feet were. If you’re looking for a hike I would skip this trail but otherwise it made for a nice day on the beach!

Nice short trail. Not too steep of an incline. Easy walk uphill. Family Friendly. Minor walkway maintenance.
If you're looking for an easy brisk ocean side hike. Look no more.

This hikes had some pros and cons. Going down the trial to the beach was scenic but it was short trial.

Well-maintained short hike down to the beach. Lots of tidal pools with starfish, hermit crabs, snails, and anemones during low tide!

Half of the trail has steps unevenly spaced...those are always hard on my knees. The beach is beautiful with lovely, large rocks in and around the water and beach.

Not a long hike from the road, it's usually a very quite and relaxing beach, and if you really wanna make your significant other happy you'll cough up some dough and rent one of those awesome houses on the hill.
