Features Views

Overview

This is a beautiful loop option with easy access just off Hwy 101 and views of False Klamath Cove and Lagoon Creek.

Runner Notes

A short and sweet loop with terrific views and easy access from the Lagoon Pond parking and picnic area.

Description

Access this run at the marked trailhead on the north side of Lagoon Creek picnic area and parking lot off Hwy 101.

Head west toward the cove from the parking area and then turn left (southwest) onto the Coastal Trail: Lagoon Creek to Parking Lot section. Shortly after, look for another left turn onto the trail section just next to Lagoon Pond. The loop can be runed in either direction but some may prefer walking north along the coast as you can look toward the False Klamath and Wilson Rocks.

Flora & Fauna

Lots of opportunities to spot seabirds (cormorants, pigeon guillemots, brown pelicans, and common murres) on the sea stacks (big rocks left behind by erosion).

The area around Lagoon Pond features great examples of coastal scrub forest plants, which include Sitka spruce, Douglas-fir, cow parsnip, wild cucumber, coltsfoot, yarrow, and many varieties of berries.

History & Background

The loop is named after the Yurok Indians who lived in this area for thousands of years.
