My grandson and I hiked 9.6 mi of this section SOBO, preferring to skip the first couple of miles of blacktop and finish at Blue Shutters Beach. The trail was open, easy and pleasant, with no tough climbs and no uncertain terrain. Finding the covered bridge was fun and provided a great spot for a break, as did the picnic table at the no-longer-used campsite in Burlingame State Park. The finale at the beach was a welcome reward for that last mile of trekking on more blacktop in unrelenting sun.
