DIFFICULTY

The majority of the trail you will be hiking through soft red sand, but there is no elevation gain......yay! There is a section that you climb down a sturdy ladder where kiddos may need a little help.

LENGTH

3.7 miles round trip. When we hiked this trail, it didn’t seem this long to me at all. I guess time flies when you are having fun!!!
