Stumbled upon this nice hiking trail along the waterfront! The path is easy to moderate, but the majority of it is a flat road. Definitely recommend for those who want a nice easy trail with a view!

Peaceful trail through forest with views of the ocean. Trail wide enough to walk side by side. Will plan to do it again.

This park is small. It’s an easy hike. Good for family. There’s also a lake so I think it’s nice here in the summer. It’s also across a small airport so you can see small planes flying in and out, it can get loud at...More

Just about anyone could hike here, even those with compromised mobility. The trails are wide and relatively flat. If you're the more adventurous sort, there are lots of huge rocks to climb on as the waves crash behind you. Nice view from the point. Dog...More

Parts of it are as long as it has sturdy tires. Parking lot is dirt and bumpy but then there is a grassy area and jetty. So it would work if it it has rugged wheels.
