This hike follows the California Coastal Trail as it makes its way through the park, mostly on sandy spits. It starts with a traverse of the mile-long Stone Lagoon spit, then cuts inland to bypass a steep headland, going through aspen and spruce forest. It reemerges on Dry Lagoon Beach, then goes through a rocky section of beach (impassable at high tide) and finishes with the 3½-mile Big Lagoon spit. The Stone and Big Lagoon spits can breach in winter and it may or may not be possible to wade across.
