Super easy trail with gorgeous lookouts. Can be heavily trafficked depending on time of year/week.

My 1yo had fun walking the flat parts and playing in the sand. Stopping at Village Pizza and Tiffanys ice cream are definitely highlights of this trip!

Trail was amazing, well kept and spacious. Unfortunately it started raining 5 minutes into the hike but the trail was perfect.
