SCULPTURE BEACH

Trail Description:

It had been a year and two months since our last hike here, and there was the usual summer cloud cover...but if anything, it added to the coastal experience. There are birders among the group, and this is an excellent place for shore birds. While they headed down the beach, the rest of the group headed down the parallel Coastal Trail on the cliffs where flowers were more abundant. 

Trail Location:
Sculpture Beach is at the end of Limantour Rd.
