Spectacular bluffs and a vast beach
This is another jewel of the city. You get a beach, forest, and beautiful scenery.
There is a vast area to cover, so I'll break this hike into a few posts. This post focuses on the beach part of the park.
The first step is to get to the right parking lot. Drive south on Brimley Road until it ends, then stay to the left until you see the parking lot for the Bluffers Beach as shown in the map:
Once you've parked, you'll see a forked path: left goes through a forest, right goes to the beach. Let's start with the beach as your dog is likely already excited about the water.
It can get frigid on a blustery day, and some of the trails have burrs and seeds that want to attach to your dog.
