    Route Description for Rodeo Beach Trail

    Let the salty air fill your lungs as you walk along the Rodeo Beach Trail. This scenic adventure boasts countless photo opportunities and outdoor pursuits—hike, walk, swim, or surf. This coast boasts wild and windy conditions, so dress in layers as insurance against changing conditions. Additionally, the route is entirely exposed—wear SPF and a sunhat to avoid overexposure!

    When you are ready to roll, depart on your adventure along the Rodeo Beach Trail from the trailhead off Mitchell Road. From here, you will be led southwest above Rodeo Lagoon before being redirected southeast along the pebbly beach. As you wander along the rocky beach, enjoy scenes of surfers tackling the crashing waves. If you get hot along your walk, just hop into the water for a refreshing rejuvenation!

    You will ultimately reach the route’s end at South Rodeo Beach. Explore the more sequestered, charming beach before retracing your footing back to the trailhead.
