  • There is an interesting loop trail that goes through some dense forest with ferns, mushrooms and tall trees. It widens out as it goes to the bay side of the park. We met a photographer who was...  more »
  • The one-mile (plus a little more) walk/hike was perfect for us two rusty hikers. Gorgeous view of the low, low tide beach, a crisp, cool and refreshing rain forest stroll and the finish line reward of both red and blue Huckleberries made it fun and memorable. Some signage confusion for dog-lovers was a bit of a bummer but not enough to keep us from going back next year.
  • I made the trail to the ocean beach. It was low tide so the trail was just mushy. The beach and surrounding area was beautiful for nature watching and picture taking not particularly walking. The rainy season is about to start. Most of the trails will be wadeable. Where the parking lot ends are only trails leading to the bay or the ocean or the interior of the park. I wanted to make it to the point where the ocean and bay meet. But, the point being a wildlife refuge, I don't think hikers are allowed. For your best chances on the trails, go at or near low tide.
