“Enjoy a beautiful run through coastal forest to stunning Third Beach.”— Emily Roeben
Depending on the season, parking at the trailhead may be limited. Please park safely and legally.
On the beach, you'll find tidepools, views, and, depending on the season, possibly lots of other users. Everyone can find what they need here on the beach—from families to folks seeking solitude, you just need to be willing to explore to find it.
If you are of an adventurous spirit, extend your run and head south until you reach the Taylor Point Trail (a trail going uphill when the huge bluff meets the ocean). This trail eventually leads from Third Beach to Toleak Point. The trail is marked and immediately ascends up 270 feet via rope ladders on the very-near vertical bank. Bring gloves if you want to try this so you don't rip up your hands. There is a stunning view of the ocean at the top of the climb.
