There are two parts to Agnes Creek Open Space, North and South. Each has its own parking lot and trailhead, but they are a stone's throw apart, and there is a connecting trail. It's easier to park at the north trailhead since it doesn't have a steep driveway like the south. Let's be honest, this isn't the most beautiful trail ever. In fact, it looks like the aftermath of a logging excursion. Most of the trees have their lower limbs removed, and there isn't much growing under the trees. If you are looking for a scenic trail near the beach, this is not it. If you live in the area and want to go for a walk to get some exercise, this might be for you. Unless the creek is seasonal, the name is misleading. There is a ravine where a creek could be, but it was completely dry when I visited. Give this trail another decade, and maybe some new growth will fill in and make it more attractive. Even so, I always hope such spaces remain open and natural, as it's a shame when towns and cities have no such areas within their limits. Concrete jungles are no substitute.
