Before heading out on the Dagger Point Trail, put on some mosquito repellent, whatever the season—and then take a short hike from the trailhead’s wooden shade kiosk, just off the parking lot, to an observation platform balanced on stilts directly above the bayshore. This is a good spot to study wave erosion along the bluffs of the bay. The bluff topography is composed of high, loose, and sandy cliffs where trees fall from the edge and onto the short and often submerged beach directly below. The fallen trees lay along the sand, graying in the sun, partially disappearing during high tides, and creating excellent roosting sites where migratory osprey can be spotted perching and gutting their fish dinners.
