This was a nice little walk in the woods. We ended up here by accident while looking for Damnation Creek Trail (which we never found :-( ). There were nice views and a beach access where we rested and watched surfers. There are facilities, which is nice, and may be a reason to choose this trail for a picnic spot.

Super easy little walk. If you are passing by and stopping at the beach go ahead and knock it out, otherwise don't seek this one out if you are looking for a hike.

It's been decades since I've done this one. I fished the lagoon with my Dad back when they planted rainbow trout there. Long before this site existed....

From the Lagoon Creek picnic area parking lot, the Yurok Loop trail passes through coastal forest, which includes spruce trees, but not redwoods, to reach bluffs that overlook False Klamath Cove and the Pacific Ocean. The trail then passes through the forest again to return to the parking lot.

At the southern end of the loop the trail meets the Coastal Trail. About 0.75 miles further south, the Coastal Trail meets a trail leading to Hidden Beach. Hidden Beach is a small sand beach that provides views of wave-cut cliffs and sea stacks.

The trail is lightly used and so is overgrown in spots. Hidden Beach is remote and secluded, so hikers should pay close attention to tides and waves.

This is a great trail to reach Hidden Beach. Goes through a variety of vegetation with a few slight ups and downs. Part of the trail goes along the coast along with some wooded sections as well.

Really nice for a 1 mile loop. Going counterclockwise you get nice views of the ocean in all directions before it splits off either east to continue the loop or south on the Coastal Trail a short ways to "Hidden Beach", which is also nice. The east side of the loop follows the lagoon through some low forest.
