Clam Beach at Fort Ross
About Clam Beach at Fort Ross in Jenner, California
Clam Beach is on the north side of Northwest Cape in Fort Ross State Historic Park. The USGS maps call this stretch of beach below steep towering cliffs “Clam Beach” but it is not labeled on Fort Ross State Park maps (but they do label this area for diving and fishing).
A trail begins at a wooden gate near the main state park parking lot and the Fort Ross Windmill. It crosses the plateau and follows the bluff north toward Clam Beach. Access to the beach is not official or easy to spot, but the main reason to come out here is to hike. If you do find the beach you might be treated to tide pools, especially at low tide. Bring sturdy shoes to walk on this rocky shoreline.
