Early 70's, 3rd week in October and beautiful weather. My buddy and I hiked in for a couple of days, built a small log structure and had a blast.

I love the imaginative way of naming those beaches.

Better than naming it after some random British explorer

The beach I grew up going to in SoCal was literally called "ocean beach" so I honestly think this is a step up naming-wise

Are those Elk hoof prints?

No, just boots. It's a popular trail.

Ah, a great place. I need to get back there considering it’s basically in my back yard

Are these open yet? I know that many locations were shuttered due to covid...last year I rode out and it was still closed, but that was like 6 months ago.

Third beach trailhead is open.

How’s the drive over there right now?


hjhart t1_j2p1uuv wrote

I went two weeks ago and it was fine. Never blocked and people were moving along quickly. Small construction after lake crescent which delayed about five minutes.

Awesome, thanks! Was just worried about snow/ice but not sure how the peninsula is over the winter so wasn’t sure if that was a valid concern


hjhart t1_j38ij3k wrote

Totally! In general the snow doesn’t cause too many issues on the coast. Stay low elevation and you should be fine in the winter in the PNW.

Drive was mellow! Some heavy fog patches, but nothing bad for heading in around 9pm. Very surprised to have that amount of sun out there in January.

Cool, thanks! Was mainly worried about snow/ice but wasn’t sure how much the peninsula typically gets over the winter
