From the trailhead you can walk down to the beach and then continue walking the beach until you reach another hill to climb back up to the trail. The trail basically loops around the entire golf course and there are helpful signs to keep you on the right path as well. Here is a helpful map to follow: Ocean Trails Map

Difficulty

Most of the trail is a flat surface along the hillside or along the beach. The only moderately difficult section is the incline from the beach to the hillside. Overall it is a fairly easy hike.
