The trail begins just inside the gate (see white line in photo below).  After about 100 ft you will pass through a small fill-dirt staging area that the County maintains.  Once you pass through the open area, the trail picks back up and goes into the woods.   Just above the small horseshoe shaped beach below, the trail emerges briefly and there is a small bench where you can look down at the ocean below.    The trail takes you in and out of heavily wooded forests.  Lone Ranch Beach is about 1 mile.  (Picture taken from Google Earth.)
