Short hike (maybe cause I jogged it) but very eye opening once you make it down the sleek (it was snowing) steps...spits you right out on the beach...stacks to the right and second to the left are scalable and beautiful views from up top...it was hailing/snowing while I was on top of the stack with made it EPIC!!

Short climb down to the beach, and then just run around the beach exploring. Beautiful. Not crowded at 8am on Saturday in December.

One of the most beautiful beaches I've ever laid eyes on. We've talked about flying back across the country solely to spend a couple weeks hiking the area. We were there in April and had beautiful sunshine, though per the locals it was the first sun they had seen in 13 days.

We walked down to 2nd beach. It's a very easy hike with slight climbing.

The actual trail is only .7 miles to the beach. The rest of the hike is South down the beach. It ends when you can't go any further because of the rocks and terrain. Basically where the beach ends. Still really pretty and a nice walk. Plan your trip durning low tide to see all the tide pools and little creatures living in them.

Very beautiful area, with the added bonus of a nice walk through the wood, (a few steps in the end before the beach, not a favorite of my wife), Arrived to late to explore the beach to much, but it did give us one of the most spectacular sunsets I have ever seen! (Don't forget you have to walk in the woods to get back to your car, make sure you have some kinda light, it got VERY dark in the woods after sunset)
