Many different trails and difficulties. I just let my legs decided which way to go 😊 but I have certain physical limitations so I can't do really rugged trails and I had no problems with the intermediate trails here.

I wanna go back!

My experience at Eagle Creek Beach was awesome. There was so much to see, and so many picture opportunities. I'll definitely be going back soon!
