Trail shared by Dara Zimmerman

A short trail to the scenic Klamath Beach and Estuary.

Dara Zimmerman

Features Birding · River/Creek · Wildlife

Family Friendly This is an easy route for kids with endless driftwood forts and lots of wildlife.

Year-round access. Don't climb on the large sacred rocks.

Description

This is a short and easy trail on a graveled road past one home that transitions into a singletrack graveled path down to the beach. The beach can be very windy and have sneaker waves. Forts made from driftwood can offer shelter. Wildlife is abundant in the river, estuary, beach, and air. The land is managed by the Yurok Tribe of Klamath.

Flora & Fauna

Whales, dolphins, seagulls, hawks, eagles, redwood trees and salmon.
