Great way to walk by the beach without getting all sandy (trail is on the cliff above the beach, but you can access the beach by a steep side trail). Dogs are supposed to be on leash, but many are off (though the trail is wide enough to avoid those). Beautiful wildflowers when the succulents are blooming. Windy, so make sure to wear a windbreaker and ear-warmer. Plenty of benches to stop and enjoy the view, or eat a picnic lunch.
