Description
Waypoints (0)

Theses steps are just your entryway to an unforgettable walk down Shoreline Beach. You can go right or left once you land on the beach. There are other people, but the beach is big enough that you will have your own space for the entirety of the walk. Keep your eyes peeled for spearfishers, seals, and other marine wildlife in addition to beautiful rocky cliffs, calming ocean waves, and an endless horizon.

It wasn’t anywhere near 1000 but still worth it!

Not really 1000 steps but a nice walk down and up stairs leading you to the beach. It gets slippery below and depending on tide level some steps may be submerged.

Simple walk (not hike) in a neighborhood beach that’s like a thin strip along the coast. Locals were friendly and many had cute dogs, easy to find parking.

The steps are just your entryway to an unforgettable walk down Shoreline Beach. You can go right or left once you land on the beach after walk down the stairs. There are other people, but the beach is vast enough that you will have your own space for the entirety of the walk. I saw spearfishers, seals, a dead stingray washed up on the beach (amazing to see up close), beautiful cliffs, rocks, calming ocean waves, and an endless horizon.

First time with my daughter and friends. Great place to visit after hiking in Gaviota. Be careful of the muddy/sandy steps, can be slippery.

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

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.

First to Review

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