Just south of the Ragged Point Inn is another stellar hike. The San Carpoforo Creek Trail leads to the spot where the San Carpoforo Creek reaches the Pacific Ocean. At low tide, it's sandy and you can walk along the creek, and out to where it meets the ocean. It's an easier hike that's pretty short and flat, and it's one that offers plenty of opportunities for swimming and exploring. It almost feels like a secret beach, since it's tucked away between cliffs, and you'll likely have the place to yourself.
