The Tolowa Dunes Trail at Tolowa Dunes State Park in Crescent City, California is an easy 2.7-mile out-and-back trail that leads north to the ocean shore and back to parking.
This hike begins by following Sand Hill Road and continues north along the sandy trail. Roughly 0.5-miles from the trailhead, Sand Hill Road technically ends and the trail continues on. The trail also includes interpretive signs for hikers to learn about the landscape and settlers who once lived here.
This trail is lightly trafficked and is a great trail for families and hikers of all skill levels.
Pets: Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.
Parking: Parking can be found at the coordinates provided and there's enough room for a handful of vehicles.
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! ✌
