“This is a very easy trail that is flat and extremely well-marked to an awesome ocean view.”— Linda Ci
Family Friendly An easy hike to a beautiful view! There is even some tide-pooling to be had.
Start at the trailhead. There is a fairly small parking lot which can be found full the majority of the day. If you continue down the trail, you'll go through the forest for a bit, but then you'll come to a fairly exposed stretch with ropes blocking of either side of the trail. There is little shade here, so for those who burn easily wear your sunscreen! Hike just a bit further through another treeline to the beach.
When you have had your fill of the view you can either turn around or take the loop around back to the original trail.
