Pretty little area with only about 150 steps to a nice beach. Don’t go out of the way to do this one.

Awesome little beach with beautiful views! Spent a couple of hours there with my 6 year old and we loved it.

Nice walk down steps to the beach, with a long sandy beach you can walk either way down.

This isn't really a trail but actually access stairs to the beach. They were wet and slimy with water leaking onto the steps from the cracks in concrete on the side walls. The view is pretty and the beach is great. On a this Sunday afternoon, we had the area to ourselves.

Stairs to a nice beach walk. Stairs wet and slippery. Nothing spectacular, but convenient access to an uncrowded area of the beach.

Stairs to the beach, check the tide. Inaccessible at certain high tides. The City was talking about repairing it, the bottom definitely needs an upgrade.

Really enjoy this beach! The stairs are super slipperly about half way down. It's pretty uncrowded. I've never had any issues with finding a parking spot.

Went for an evening stroll and loved every second of it! Beautiful sunset and peaceful, not too many people.

Not really a trail, just a steep staircase that leads down to the Mesa beach. But the views are really nice!
