Trail Description:
We were here two years ago to the month, and there was a slightly different floral population visible. While there were few concentrated patches of flowers, Yellow Cats Ears, Clarkias and Lupins could be seen almost everywhere. This time a few of us made it all the way to the beach, only to find we really hadn't miss much. The views were just as nice from the grassy hills.
