Description

One of three trails from Mount Baldhead to Oval Beach, this one starts at a signpost on the right as you look down from the top. The path follows a ridge through the woods and offers some beautiful overlooks. The western end of the trail, as shown on some maps, goes down a steep dune. The route shown here is gentler.
