I specifically picked this trail in order to take my 2 dogs to the beach. It’s in a state park and be aware that there is a $5 parking fee (they do take credit cards). The park itself was pretty awesome. There’s a pool (with a slide), rental cabins, and a lot of activities. It would be a great place to stay overnight. The trail is packed dirt. I will warn you that there are 3 long steep stairways that are not for the faint of heart. The beach was amazing and definitely worth the trip.

First time on this trail- beautiful and loved hearing the waves crash over the rocks down by the beach. Definitely get your heart rate up by doing the series of stairs.
