Most of the fun was the hike to the beach. The beach was not superior to the rest of the rugged coastal views we had seen already. The hike was fun and I’d do it again on another coastal trip.

Were only ones on the trail in late May. Got to end and had a huge beach along the Pacific ocean to ourselves. Saw sea lions in the waves. Dunes were incredible and a must see.

This was a fun thing to do. I believe that it was a little over a half mile, one way, from the parking lot to the beach. There is plenty of parking available. Walking in the sand is a little tricky. At times, your feet...More

This is a relatively easy hike and was beautiful. The dunes are amazing and the sand is so fine it's like trudging through snow. The beach is wide open and tranquil. Not a lot of people on this trail until you get back to the...More
