We found some parking down in front of the beach, parking is 15 flat during the week and 20 during the weekend if you park in the lot. No dogs (we found this out yesterday when we tried to bring him) but still a very enjoyable trail. I don't think it's really "moderate" maybe more like easy-moderate, the trails are very well maintained. The view here is a five star! Just wanted a little more difficulty and maybe cheaper parking in the lot, but we really had a good time.

We hiked the red butte trail down to the beach.
The view was amazing
the steps got very very steep
towards the bottom and i had to sit on my behind
because there were no handrails
and the sands were wet and slippery
i came down them but i did not go
back up them
we walked the beach instead and headed to the
lifegard tower and went up the road.

Great place to spend the morning. The views were gorgeous and the terrain is easy to traverse.

This trail provided some easily traversed and sometimes narrow obstacles of mostly Desert vegetation. Views were spectacular and worth the hike down to the beach from there it was a quick walk along the shoreline back to our car.
