Dunes Dunes and more Dunes, Ocean This "trail" is not so much a trail as a trek across some of the most impressive dunes in the west. Once you get out of the tree cover the choice of routes is yours but be sure not to lose where you came from as the dunes can be vast and disorienting. Watch out for dirt bikes and quads as you trek across the inspiration for Frank Herberts "Dune" novels. About two miles out there is a thin strip of trees seperating the dunes from the coast. Follow dirt bike trails out to the beach. The riptide on the coast can be dangerous so be careful in the water.

If you park at the far north lot and walk to the beach you'll see some pines and amazing undisturbed dead trees scattered along the coast. Great for walking and photography.

Loved it! I felt that it is more in the easy category rather then moderate. Beautiful beach!

This is one of if not my kids favorite hike to do. We have been doing this hike for years and they're almost 6 now. We do this hike anytime of the year. Great hike out and back!
