Loved this beach!
Had it all to ourselves! Gorgeous turquoise water.
When the trail crosses the dirt road, it restarts a bit to the left by a big tree.
You can also follow the dirt road to another nice beach about 3/4 mile farther south.

So we were actually looking for the Secret Cove, the nude beach. When you look at the trail map in this app, go along the lake in opposite direction where you see an actual cove on the map. That's the spot. It's gorgeous but it was stupid crowded and had a boat anchored in the center and blasting dumb music. We found our own Little Rock to sit on:)

whoops! didn't know that this was a nudist beach! Had to walk up a bit to get to the next beach cove. Really pretty views! It is Saturday so parking was a bit challenging. Look for the stairs, easier to get to the trail.
