Nice family trail, not long trail. Steps to beach though but if you take your time it’s fine. If nice weather I suggest bring sandals, specially for little ones, as there is creek they will want to walk in at the beach, just deep enough for their toes... my wife didn’t have them so she had to leap frog over water spots to walk the beach... even bring sack lunch if you have kids and it’s nice out, will wish you had so you can sit at the beach and let them play

A very pleasant, short loop. The spur trail leads to the beach, which on a sunny day is really very beautiful. The road that leads to the State Park, East Yates Rd, is an unpaved, rough surface road with pebbles and rocks, but it is easily driveable for any type of car. Discover Pass is required to park at the trailhead.

The app clocked this hike as 1.5k. It says easy but those of you just starting out, it's steep terrain down to water and if you take the loop back to the parking area, it's a gradual incline with brief spots of difficulty.

Pretty short hike. Gets steep when you are going to the water but quick and easy hike.

Very quiet and clean trails and beach access. My toddlers enjoyed the hike very much. Bring your own trash bag to dispose of waste. No bins in sight. Which is okay.

Besides the fact that it doesn't give you a clear idea of how far to the water when on the trail it was great. Is pretty steep in a few spots and some stairs are coming apart. But over all nice quite place to hike. Enjoyed it very much.
