I ran the whole trail from Breakers all the way up to the lighthouse and back last weekend. It was a beautiful sunny day with picturesque views. I look forward to running the trail again and again and again. Very easy run with a little bit of a challenge heading up to the lighthouse and lookout at the Cape. Highly recommended!!!
The Northend trail head is located on 26th just off of Pacific Hwy. just follow the Doscovery Trail sign then the Monument Tree sign. Sort of misleading since it's right beside an apartment complex. The trail is very well maintained! No tree roots, dog or horse manure when we were there. We even sighted a lone deer then later a mama deer with her 2 baby fawns. This trail does connect over to Cape Disappointment State Park. I brought my mountain bike for this trip but will definitely come back with my road bike!!
This trail offers well maintained trails, easy access to the beach, and mostly paved trail. The trail was also very easy with little steep inclines. At the trail head there was a bridged area that you can walk on, that could have been at once a pond, but now it contains a lot of deer, and possibly coyote pawprints. I would reccommend this trail to anyone looking for an easy, but accessible, and achieving hike.
I ride this trail on a regular basis now that I moved to Long Beach. Love the ride to Beards Hollow. The ride is flat and the views are supreme, especially Beards Hollow. I posted Picture so you can see for yourself. For longer rides you can ride on to Discovery park and visit the light houses and continue out to Illwaco at the port for nice views of the Columbia. I moved here because of these rides.
