Need to Know

Parking is available at either end of the trail for free. The Pirates Cove lot is dirt and may be rough on low clearance cars while the Shell Beach side is a small paved cul-de-sac.

Description

This trail is a very flat, well-maintained pathway that connects Pirate's Cove to Shell Beach. The pathway offers expansive views out towards the ocean as it follows the cliff's edge.
