Hearts Desire Beach to Shell Beach Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Talk a walk through the rich forest on the slopes of Inverness Ridge, with views of the bay as you go and a beach at your starting and finishing points. Ideally, you’ll find a friend who would rather spend a day a the beach than hike, and who is willing to shuttle you the short distance between these trailheads. If not, you can easily leave a car at the Shell Beach parking area and continue to Hearts Desire to begin your hike. For a full-day excursion, with some beach time at both ends, make this an out-and-back hike. If you begin from the parking area along Pierce Point Road, you’ll shorten this hike by about a mile and a half. However, you’ll miss Hearts Desire Beach."
