About Enderts Beach in Crescent City, California
Enderts Beach is a remote beach along the Del Norte Coast south of Crescent City. The beach is known mostly for its tide pools, but is worth the effort to get here just for the views. Turn off Highway 101 onto Enderts Beach Road and drive to the very end at Crescent Beach Overlook, a Redwood National Park facility. The first parking area is for the overlook which is worth a stop. The last parking area is the trailhead for the Last Chance Section of the California Coastal Trail. Hike (or bike) this trail for about 3/4 mile of flat wide trail to Nickel Creek Camp (closed indefinitely due to vandalism), then you descend a short path to the beach. You’ll find rocks and driftwood on the beach and a small canyon where Nickel Creek cuts through the hillside to reach the sand. It’s best to avoid high tide at Enderts Beach as it gets pretty narrow then. The California Coastal Trail continues south from here for about six miles to Damnation Creek Beach and for many miles beyond that if you want to backpack the Del Norte and Humboldt County coastlines.
