“Short, steep track down to the crashing surf at McClures Beach”— Megan W
There is another beach just to the south of McClures, past a gap in the rocky point, but only visit this if the tide is low and going out (!). Swimming is definitely NOT recommended at either beach. Note: bikes are not allowed on this trail.
Other wildlife include mountain lion, raccoon, rabbits, birds and non-venomous snakes. Wildflowers (especially poppies and lupine) are abundant April-June.
