We did this after the Lagoon Trail and it was just beautiful. It was a little overcast and chilly but the walk and the views were worth it. Took the dog and stopped before nesting area but it was still a great little hike.

Like the above comment, easy, relaxing trail. The latter half of the trail was closed when i walked it in mid March though, due to snowy plover nesting. So it also is a good bird watching trail if you're into that.

Very easy trail that will take you along a coastal stream, through wetlands, by Snowy Plover habitat and finally to the beach.
