Had an enjoyable walk at Oswald State Park. Do your feet a favor and wear hiking boots or shoes. Also, it would be a good idea to bring a sweater (even in the summer).

Loved the hike to the point at Oswald West. Take sunscreen for the beach. The surfing looked really lovely, relaxing & open to amateurs which is always nice.

Although the signage was a bit confusing, the trail we took offered access to the lush forest and a fine view at the top.

During our stay at Kelly's we hit Oswald beach at low tide to see the critters at the recommendation of Kelly himself. We were amazed by the hundreds of sea stars (star fish) and anenomies we were able to see and touch. The surfers were a hoot to watch and the kids loved the hike through the forest and playing in the sand! By far one of the most beautiful and wondrous places on earth. Highly recommend packing a light lunch and enjoying several hours at low tide!

Great beach only 0.5 miles from parking lot. Lots of surfers but still lots of room to find a quite space on the sand.
