There is the bluff trail that follows the coast and has plenty of opportunities for capturing scenic photographs. The trail has several ornate and uniquely designed benches. It is mostly flat and the trail is compacted dirt. You can start from either end of the trails Both are nestled in a residential neighborhood. It is a dog friendly place with poop bags and trash receptacles are also located at both ends of the trails. Any time is fine to hike with the coastal breeze although mid day in the summer may be too warm for older and young children.

This is the perfect place to take a little walk in this area. You can enter from either end of it (north or south) and it is always very pleasant with breathtaking views. Along the way, people have constructed benches from driftwood that are commemorated to loved ones. So interesting and all the flowers blooming in the spring are fantastic. It does get VERY windy at times. Easy walk, not taxing at all.

Morning walk is the best no wind and the tides are low. The trails are easy to walk on with close view to the wild life.

This is a lovely trail for the early morning. We grabbed a couple cups of cappuccino at the local Shell Station and enjoyed the sunrise above the trees during our walk. Benches along the way to sit and rest and a lot of locals to chat with. Lovely!!!

Gorgeous view on this beautiful preserve. It was super windy, but still worth doing. Ocean view the entire time on the path. The entire loop takes just an hour. Part of the way is on a wood boardwalk to preserve plant life and part is hard dirt. Fairly easy walking. Definitely recommend if you have time.
