Below the Enderts Beach overlook, the Crescent Beach section of the Coastal Trail traverses lush ocean bluffs. (The Daily Triplicate/Richard Wiens)
Almost everyone has been to the overlook at the end of Enderts Beach
Road, the one with the stunning view of majestic rows of waves in the
foreground and Crescent City in the background.
And most folks have probably also been to the oceanside picnic area off of Enderts Beach Road.
But how many of you have walked the two-mile section of Coastal
Trail between the two points? I’d guess not many. That’s partly because
I’ve done it twice and encountered no other humans, but mostly because
the stretch has an eerie remoteness, as if deep in the backcountry even
though it’s only a few hundred feet from the beach and actually
crisscrosses the road.
