This easy seaside hike is pleasant any day of the spring, summer, or fall but on an unseasonably warm January winter day, if was exceptionally wonderful. Deer abound on this refuge as well as a monitored coyote pack. Migrating wildlife of all sorts are seen here regularly.

Nice easy stroll. The wildlife and ocean views are great! Deer, birds, and sometimes seals. There is also a little museum to explore, Great for kids, not for dogs

Amazing views and bunnies galore. Great little trail running loop or family walk. Definitely a treasure. No dogs allowed.

I can see the appeal of this place and why everyone has given it such great ratings, however, I personally was not a big fan. Yes, it is a pretty trail with some awesome views of the ocean, but i didn't like it much because it was very busy and hot since there's barely any shady areas. It was probably 80 degrees the day we went, nothing crazy, but felt really hot because of the lack of shades. Additionally, we wore bug spray as we always do but still found some ticks on us when we got back to the car which has not happened to us on any other trail before.
