What some people don’t know is that if you take the trail that heads to the beach, you can find a smaller trail that heads off to the West. This trail will take you to a ditch between Mt. Baldy & Central Ave. beach.

There are some beautiful overlooks once you head that way as well as a gorgeous secluded beach that almost seems out of place for the area. There are high vertical cliffs of sand, many rocks & pebbles and lots of different plants & foliage throughout your route.
