This time of year, it will be great to walk along the beach, so....
Let's hike along the bottom of the Scarborough Bluffs starting and ending at the Doris McCarthy Trail head.
Most of the hike will be on the beach which means sand, driftwood logs and a couple of rocky sections to negotiate

NOTE: The Doris McCarthy Trail is a path to get down to the beach. The elevation change is 311 feet (95m) which means the last part of the hike is back up the 311 feet of elevation.

We will have lunch somewhere along the beach
