“Enjoy this short route down to the beach as it leads past a few park highlights.”— Mikhaila Redovian
Family Friendly Short with berries and elk along the way, this can be a memorable trail for kids of all ages.
The route follows the fading trace of an old skid road, and is wide enough to navigate with multiple people abreast. The trail does make a rather steep descent to the beach, but even so, try to slow down to take in your surroundings. In season, huckleberries can make for a memorable snack, and the shade of the alders above will be perfect during the summer.
Once you reach the beach, take your time to admire the views of the ocean.
