Was up that way in the spring, trail was dry and really fun, not a whole lot of time on dirt, mostly roots and logs it seemed. Trail head sign said give yourself 60 or 90 minutes, it took me 30 with a light pack, if i remember correctly it's only a km or so from parking lot to beach.
There's water in the river but like Dru says it was full of tannins and dark, also tidal so brackish quite far up river from beach.
When i was there, a little stream was flowing out of some rock near the trail head off the beach, i think it was 10 meters to the right side of trail head. That was choice water, still filtered it though. Its been so dry this summer so that could have disappeared by now. If your worried about having good water, maybe pack a bit extra in.
Its an awesome place out there, have fun!
