8:45am at West Beach parking lot
The hike will include two trails from the North Beach trailhead - a Cornet Bay-Goose Rock 3.5 mile loom with 475' gain and a West Beach-Cranberry Lake 4.5 mile loop with 275' gain. As we hike through lovely coastal forest, along Goose Rock, sand dunes, lakeshore and coastline, we'll be rewarded by plenty of great scenery, rock gardens, early wildflowers, occasional wildlife views, and more. The pace will be leisurely to moderate to allow for enjoyment of the beautiful scenery and capture a few photos along the trail.
