Hopefully, we get decent weather as we enjoy beach, beautiful trail hiking, and marvelous coastal views. Moderately-paced hike entails about 3 miles of beach walking with an 8.5 mile loop inland. We'll do a lunch stop after a nice climb up from the beach, when hike is about 60% complete. After the hike, can hang on beach or simply take off. Dining options for any carpools that are interested. Sorry, no dogs allowed.
