From the south (Ventura) take the 101 North to Carp.  Take exit 86 and turn left on Casitas Pass Road.  Turn right on Carpinteria Ave.  Turn left down Linden Ave.  Just before the beach, turn right on Sandyland Rd.  Park anywhere.  The trailhead is all the way down at the end of the road...

 I took the boardwalk to the beach

 Keep going...

 I walked (ran) through the Private Sandyland Cove neighborhood

 I'm going the wrong way but I see a bridge...

Heading back
