Alpinejo.tripod.com: Backcountry Trails Guide

I had to move my site due to Tripods new policy of only providing 20 megs of
free space, my site currently uses the old maximum at nearly 49 megs. As you may
have noticed my site was also being shut down on a daily basis due to exceeding
Tripod's new bandwidth policy--but hey what could I expect for free. It was fun
while it lasted.
In the coming weeks I hope to release the new format of Alpinejo-Backcountry
Trails Guide with a new database and searching capabilities.
Thanks for visiting!

Third Beach is a great hike any time of the year, especially when
the weather cooperates. The trail starts off looking like a highway, about
5 feet wide. You meander through the forest for 1.3 miles then your on the
beach. Make sure you put your gators on before hitting the sand or you
will be sorry.
Once on the beach head south the views are great. Depending on how you
catch the tide you may have a nice wide beach to hike on or you may have
to scamper through the rocks.
We hiked on down to Toleak Point and ducked up in the trees on the
shoreline. This is the best place to camp we have found. Then you can take
day hikes down to Goodman Creek and beyond.
Make sure you bring a frisbee, the one time I forgot mine I ended
up finding one.
