"This is a strenuous hike, but one with plenty of variety. Beginning in dense forest, the trail passes through several native habitats and a recovering burn zone on the way down to the beach on Drakes Bay. The trail makes a stop at the summit of Mount Wittenberg, and a short detour will take hikers to Sculptured Beach. Two hike-in campgrounds and a youth hostel are on or near the route, allowing for easy overnight stays." Read more
