Gordon Pond Trail - we were looking for something to do on a windy beach day, but I came to the beach prepared. I had a list of lots of walks and hikes in the OC area. So on this day we decided to head up highway 1 and see which ones we could find. Gordons Pond Hike (where is is "paved") is level with little elevational climb. We walked only the "paved" section as our legs/feet were already protesting our previous days sand walking and the full trail goes over packed and loose sand (we hope to take this trail another future day). There is a very nice observation platform at the end of the paved trail. Nice views along the way too.
