About Crescent Beach in Crescent City, California

Crescent Beach is a long and wide beach immediately south of Crescent City. The main parking area, located near the midpoint of the crescent-shaped beach, can be found on Enderts Beach Road off Highway 101. This parking lot and the beach south of here is on Redwood National Park property. Winter storms toss driftwood and logs high up on the back of the beach creating many resting spots for a long walk along this shoreline. Just south of the parking lot is a wetland area where Mill Creek pools up before flowing across the sand. There is a beach overlook at the end of Enderts Beach Road that looks back over the entire length of Crescent Beach. The half-mile hike to Enderts Beach begins near the overlook.
