Points of Interest

1. Abbotts Lagoon Trailhead

The Trailhead has a parking lot with several parking spots and bathroom. There is a sign with a map and information about the trail.

2. Junction

A trail turns up the which is a good place if you want a more aerial view of the lagoon. But if you want to go to the beach keep going straight.

3. Bridge

There is a bridge that crosses the lagoon that give a nice view of the lagoon in both directions.

4. Beach

Here there is a beach that stretches very far in both directions. Since it is a bit of the hike to this beach it is usually pretty empty. It is a great place to be if you want to go to the beach but don't want to worry about people.
