Anniversary hike with my husband and dogs. This hike was SATURATED with dogs the entire way. Heavily trafficked with bathrooms and trash cans. Lots of surfers on the trail and at the beach, which was fun to watch.

The trail down was easy, and not very muddy. Although I ended up taking a different trail down because I parked at the lot on the west side of the road 100 yards beyond the main lot. Once on the beach, it’s wide open. We turned right and went towards the waterfall. Had fun playing on the rocks. Good spot for kids.

the best thing to paradise! the kiddos & pup love the little walk to get them going! once you get to the beach you go all the way to the north side & that's where the magic is! the waterfall & rocks, the tide pools that are literally perfect mini pools for the kids to swim in with no worries. this place is perfect!

Nice trail- was out for maybe 90 minutes and someone smashed in my car window and took a bag of stuff- nothing valuable either. Be careful if you’re parking in these lots.

Narrow trail upward through the woods, a few spots peek out onto the beach. Muddy & roots, would rate it as moderate. Worth it for some ocean views!
