HikingGreat!

Easy and enjoyable hike! We took the Brickyard path and it took us around a hour 20 mins! Don’t forget to veer onto the Beach Trail for the look out point!

Easy, well traveled trail. Wooded until you get to beaches. Good exercise. Took the new linked trail to the historic Brickyard site. Beaches are rocky but can get to a sandy beach by walking a bit! I only recorded half the trail specific to the Brickyard and one overlook. My smart watch said we traveled 4.47 miles out and back.

Completed Harris Trail. Quick 20 minute walk which is nice for the dog on a hot summer day.

Nice hike. Apply bug spray for mosquitoes and ticks. Wear long socks for poison ivy and poison oak. Plenty of ticks, especially down by the rocky beach area. The one (western) section of the yellow Beach trail outlined by the app was too overgrown to pass given the consequences of walking through with low socks. So we opted to take the other (eastern) portion of the beach trail which was not part of the app’s recommended path. Glad we did as it was much more passable, had a nice “board walk” path down to the beach area, which is a must see if you’re going to take this hike. Not sure why this portion of the trail is omitted by the app. It’s the payoff for the long journey. We took our shoes off and let the kids play on rocks and get their feet wet in the ocean. Overall, worth the risk of itching, and I think we made it unscathed.

As noted in another review, you can walk up the beach from one staircase to the other (slightly off the suggested path). Beach is beautiful but rocky, so if you want to swim bring your water shoes.

Wonderful hike/walk. I did the whole loop and I will say, I’m pretty rusty at hiking right now and I considered this to be easy, not moderate.

Pretty easy hike. A new path down to the beach has been added. It came in handy because the original path was closed for security because the Obamas were vacationing nearby!
