“An easy adventuring spot for runners with kids and a great cool-down or rest day run.”— Nicholas Keast
The trail is well signed and easy enough to do with kids. The beach is filled with cliffs, boulders, and places to adventure.
Once at the cobbled stone beach, the trail goes west to a bedrock outcropping that provides small climbing, flat, shallow pools, and a great viewpoint.
Beyond the bedrock outcropping the Halfway Log Dump Boulders start. The first set of boulders are home to a sensitive ecosystem with threatened wildflowers. This ecosystem within the cracks on the boulders and the tops is very similar to an alpine setting, so the flowers are fragile. Please say off and pick nothing.
Continue on a little further to another set of boulders, and the fun can begin! Climb and adventure away! When you are done exploring for the day, simply return to the trailhead the way you came.
