First Day Hike - Sandpiper Pond and Beach Explorations

At Huntington Beach State Park

Happy New Year! Let's start your New Year's resolution out on the right foot and hit a State Park trail. Join a ranger at Huntington Beach State Park and enjoy the Sandpiper Pond Trail and beach walk. We will meet at the North Beach (Jetty) parking lot to take a hike along the Sandpiper Pond Nature Trail, meandering along the edge of a freshwater marsh and through the lush maritime forest, and back along the beach. The total length will be about 2 1/4 miles. Bring water and dress for the weather. Binoculars and a small bag for beach treasures are optional.
