Stunning View Of Enderts Beach
September 7, 2022
A stunning overlook view of the popular rugged Enderts Beach as the rolling waves of the Pacific Ocean come ashore on the watery edge of the Redwood National and State Parks located 5.5 miles south of Crescent City, California. A half-mile hike along the "Last Chance Section" of the California Coastal Trail descends to the beach that offers great opportunities for tide pooling. The first part of the trail follows coastal cliffs and sometimes the trail is impacted, or closed by rock falls.
Redwood National and State Parks (RNSP) reside in the North Coast of California and Oregon. The North Coast is a loosely defined region from about Ukiah, California inland and Fort Bragg, California on the coast, extending to Josephine County in Oregon. When travelling on Highway 101 south to north, you'll notice a distinct change in vegetation from California oak woodlands to the Douglas-fir/coast redwood forests and a very moist climate. The ancient coast redwood ecosystem preserved in the parks contains some of the planet's most majestic forests.
