Nice hike along the ocean. We walked south and up the trail to the entrance to Sunset State (restrooms located here) and back. 4.7 miles. There were a few walkers along the way, with a few people fishing and surfing. Walking in sand can be tough.

Continuous sandy coastline for many miles in both directions. Neither too crowded nor too desolate. Clean and safe to go barefoot. If you walk N to the end of the bay you can climb the stairs, turn left, and walk along some nicely wooded tracks to the beach town of Capitola.

Super easy out and back trail. Mostly on a boardwalk do it's great for strollers and wheelchairs. Lots of birds, especially during migration. Very peaceful. The photos featured above are not Kirby Park, they are either Struve or Watsonville Slough. While the parking lot does look pretty sketchy, I think the partying takes place in the evening.

The gate was locked at the road so that is where we and others had to park. It didn't feel very safe to leave our car there. Lots of spray painted signs and empty beer bottles. Otherwise, beautiful scenery.

Enjoyable, easy, paved trail with views of the water and hills. Had a faint musty odor due to the stagnant nature of a slough. Overall, relaxing & fun.
