We drove to South Point and then I ran to the Green sand beach.
The road to South Point is mostly 1 1/2 lanes wide so when a car comes from the opposing direction, both have to move over to the rough shoulder to get past. No big deal really, just adds to the experience. Very windy out there, just look at the way the trees grow!
Once at South Point, I ran from the parking lot to the beach while my wife waited. She did not want to go, and the only way for me to see it was to hoof it. It was windy, sandy, rocky and lots of ups and downs but I will rememeber it for the rest of my life.
Once I got there, took a few pictures from the top rim, then made my way down the trail down, skipped the steps and just scrambled down on the loose scree. It was very cool to actually be on the beach that is in so many pictures out there. I used the steps to climb up and then ran back. Total trip time, 57 minutes.
Be in good shape, have water and know how to pace yourself before you try this, walking or running. There were others that walked and 2 jeeps that I saw. Most of the people that I saw that started walking turned around before they got there.
