The Pebble Beach Whale Watching Trail in Crescent City, California is an easy 0.1-mile out-and-back trail that leads to a lookout platform where hikers can enjoy a seasonal view of the California Gray Whale migration.
This tiny trail is just a stones-throw long, but is a great stop to stretch your legs and potentially get a view of some California Gray Whales. California Gray Whales are known for their lengthy 9,000 - 12,000 mile round-trip migration along the west coast of North America. The whales spend their Summers in the arctic feeding, but then migrate to southern California during the Winter. The California Gray Whale migration peaks in Crescent City between March and May annually; however, if you show up off-season, you may still get to see one of these whales surface for air.
Pets Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.
You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 👍 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄
Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
