Trail begins in a conifer forest and provides vistas of fresh water lakes, wet areas within the forest and ocean waves. The trail wanders threw a spruce forest with substantial tree size and stops at the serene Threemile Lake and ends at the ocean beach. The trail offers either a difficult trek to the beach or an easy self-guided interpretive loop. The 2.7 miles to the beach may feel even longer as you traverse soft, open sand dunes.
