The hike from Usal Beach to Shelter Cove is a very reasonable and doable hike if done in multiple days. Plus, this would allow you to hangout at beaches for longer than we did. However, hiking it all in one day is quite difficult, between the distance and elevation gain. The hiking is slowest at the beginning because of hiking through brush, being a fairly small trail, and elevation gain and somewhat slow at the end becuase of elevation gain. Otherwise, the rest is relatively flat and easy hiking on a road. All in all, a great day!
