Runner Notes

Practice on the stairs for the Dipsea race, but be careful going down. Get a little sand running in as well.

Description

The trail down is steep with plenty of stairs. There are a number of places where the flora gets tall and it seems walled in. On a foggy day, the trail disappears ahead of you. On clear days, the beach below provides quite the reward. Become a beachcomber on the Black Sands Beach, take a dip in the Pacific Ocean, and have a picnic before you ascend to the parking lot.

There is limited parking in the lot at the trailhead, but it is worth arriving early or waiting for a space to open up.
