  • I planned a day hike and photo op for my weekend in Gold Beach and used Google Maps to try to find the access road to the Old Beach Road. There is a lack of road signs pointing the way to Otter Point....  more »
  • Beautiful views of the Pacific headlands. Easy walking trail with short hike to the bluffs which sit high above the beach. In season, both otters and seals can be seen here.  more »
  • Beauty in the 2 red flag day hike. Walked 4 miles down a gentle grade down to the beach. It was a long windy beach hike toward the Jetty at Gold Beach. The strong winds were blowing us down the beach and we made good time . Our friends were having lunch while waiting to pick us up. They weren't even finished when they got our call to shuttle us back to camp! Blue skies wonderous waves sea air acrobatic birds. Otter Point trail is grand.
  • My favorite place I visited when I was in Gold Beach. The cliffs are breathtaking and the distant sea stacks are phenomenal! Google maps malfunctioned and took me a half mile in the wrong direction. I almost didn't find this place. Be sure to get off 101 at Old Coast Rd. Then take a right. Drive for a bit until you see the sign for Otter Point. Drive down the little road and park your car, then just a short hike. If you have not been here you'll thank me later for this detailed post. Enjoy!
