“An easier section of the Coast Trail just south of the mouth of the Klamath River traversing along the bluff.”
— Zander Göpfert
Easy grades and beautiful views. Parking areas make this an easy shuttle option or go for a longer, out-and-back route.
To access this section of the Coastal Trail, head to the Carruthers Cove Trailhead and parking area. From here, head north onto the Coastal Dr. as it transitions into the Coastal Trail. The trail gradually descends and then ascends toward Split Rock. Split Rock lies just over two miles from the start.
From here, continue along the top of the bluff for 1.2 miles until the trail ends at the High Bluff Overlook. Here, you'll find parking and picnic areas or continue further north on the Coastal Dr. to the WWII Radar Station at Flint Ridge.
