This route covers a wide range of shore environments, with facilities at both ends. At the beginning, there are two sitdown seafood and steak restaurants, and at the other end in Short Beach Park, you’ll have toilet and bathing facilities along with a concession stand in season at your disposal. Best of all, since you’ll be walking into this park, you won’t have to pay admission.

The trail ultimately reaches another sea wall and large rocks which are completely or partially submerged during hightide, making the trail close to impossible to follow without getting your feet wet. Furthermore, the beach is littered with garbage. All in all, there are nicer beaches/coastline in the area.
