This lovely walk encompasses the beautiful harbor & marina of Dana Pt & features not only the statue of the author of "Two Years Before the Mast", but also a replica of the ship he sailed on (Brig Pilgrim). It is a flat walk along the water in the harbor & then into Doheny State Beach & Campground. There is always plenty of activity going on. You'll be sure to enjoy the ocen views as well as the boats, birds & beach. You can walk on the sand at any point but the difficulty rating of the walk will increase to 1C. The 5K will not go to the beach. Although it is usually sunny in SoCal, be prepared by layering. Bring sun protection and water.
