Be prepared to have your vehicle vandalized. Last time I visited Somoa beach, my passenger side window got smashed out. I had nothing in the car to steal. But apparently, that didn't matter. Visit at your own risk.

I love this trail, I take my dog's hair regularly, they may run off leash. we meet up with other dogs if we can. but quite often I'm alone in this Beach. it says its 3.5 MI you can go as far as you want. and I often do.

was visiting the city and staying about ten mins up the road. took my boyfriend's truck to the beach with the dog while he was working. the beach is beautiful and it was a gorgeous day, normally I spend hours on the water, the dog loves it. but after about twenty mins I thought I should head back, walk back up to the basically empty parking lot and find the front passenger window smashed out and everything ran through. never had anything broken into like that before and it really makes me angry. no one elses cars were broken into, just ours, the big diesel work truck that is 15 yrs old, covered in dirt from jobs and just looks like an honest man's vehicle.

Don't know why this is listed as a trail, it's a lovely, easy beach walk. Not many people unless it's a hot (70) day.

It's basically just a beach. Not so much a trail. Decent sandy beach, but I prefer rocky beaches with sea life to observe. Quite a few people here as well.
