Biked over from my neighborhood a couple miles away. Nice trails to get there. Very small beach but besides just relaxing on the tiny beach you can do some shell fishing (with a license) and swim in clean, brackish water. If you walk the trail...More

Nice hike with dogs and fam. Good shade from trees and rocky beach. Unfortunately, dogs not allowed on beach but there were some pockets of water along the hike for the dog. Didn't make it to the bluff.

Parts of it are as long as it has sturdy tires. Parking lot is dirt and bumpy but then there is a grassy area and jetty. So it would work if it it has rugged wheels.
