“Beautiful coastal ride to deserted Victory Beach.”— Almonzo Wilder
Heading back to the trail a nearby junction is signed for the "Loop Trail" to the left, or "Beach Access" to the right. Both tracks actually lead fairly directly to the beach. To make a bit of a loop, head left at the signed intersection and then right on a fire road that heads straight toward the ocean at a second intersection. Some ups and downs over the ancient dune lines can be steep. As you approach the beach, walk your bike and to be on the lookout for seals, sea lions and penguins that can be in the vegetation behind the beach. The last line of dunes has a sharp drop that deposits you on the sand.
At low tide, you can cruise up and down for many kilometers on Victory Beach. The sand can be soft, and watch for animals (penguins, sea lions and seals) and the rising tide - at very high tides the water can come right to the dune line. At the south end of the beach is the 1861 shipwreck of the Victory, remains of which are visible at low tide.
When you're tired of the sand you can return to the car the way you came, or find the more southern path from the beach that will close the loop that started near the entrance to Okia Reserve.
