This trailhead is opposite Diamond Ridge Rd, 5 miles north along the Sterling Hwy. The trail begins by descending along Diamond Creek, then hits the beach. Check a tide book, and leave before low tide and return before high tide. High tides will cover most of the sand and force you to scramble onto the base of the nearby cliffs.
You can walk the 7 miles into town and eventually meet up with Bishop’s Beach Trail.
