Hike the Yurok Loop Trail
California › Lagoon Creek Picnic Ground
Added by Jason Hatfield
Enjoy a short hike through a Sitka spruce forest with views of the rugged Northern California coast.
The Yurok Loop Trail is a small loop on the northern end of the growing California Coastal Trail. This family-friendly hike starts at a picturesque lagoon near False Klamath Cove before crossing a bridge and entering the Sitka spruce forest. From the trail junction, you have the choice of passing deeper into the forest on the left or heading to views of the Pacific Ocean and towering sea stacks on the right. If you're entertaining the thought of spending more time with nature you can continue down the 7.8-mile section of the Costal Trail, otherwise complete the loop on the opposite section and enjoy a picnic back at the trailhead.

This is a fun trail if you're looking for some great coastal hiking. In the fall, you can munch on blackberry most of the way. This trail connects to Hidden Beach, a somewhat secret cove in Klamath if continued down the coastal trail. Also a quick note: this trail is NOT dog friendly.
