This trailhead is located in Canyon Mouth Park at the far end of the parking lot and is the only place in the canyon that requires a fee. The park itself is a large area along the river with picnic tables and fire rings and a restroom.
The trail starts out as an old paved service road and changes to a sandy single track. It crosses over a large seawall and shortly thereafter becomes a wooded dirt trail. It’ offers easy to walk slightly varied terrain for 9/10 of a mile along the river before you get to the dead end. Like the other canyon trails it offers some great views and is short enough to enjoy it and still be able to fit in the other attraction along the canyon. The park wasn’t crowded when we were there so it looks like a nice place to make a day of it, but I’d imagine it gets pretty crowded in the warmer months.
