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. The open sand is unmarked due to constantly changing conditions. Hikers are advised to climb the tallest dune to get their bearings.
