Description

The trail is marked by posts with stripes of white, blue, and white. It winds through wooded areas on either side of Perryman Street, allowing bathers to hike to the beach without worrying about cars. There are a few very short steep sections and at a couple of points where you have to look carefully for the next sign. About halfway through is a deck with benches, overlooking a ravine.
