Klamath, California Map

This was a beautiful hike - definitely started from the north end and hiked up to the Overlook. Stopped at Hidden Beach on the way up for a spell and had the entire beach to ourselves. Well worth it and look forward to doing it again. Seems someone had come through and cut back some of the overgrowth recently (August 2019).

Nice trail for the various climate experiences, sounds of seals barking, ocean waves, etc. some overgrown areas. Trail map looks off - isn’t aligned with coastal trail & if you follow it, will not get to beach. There’s a trail marker 3/4 in-follow left to beach. Not sure if it’s Hidden Beach, but other hikers said it was. We did that and skipped rest to False Klamath.

Interesting little trail down to 2 buildings that, from the sky, look like a farmhouse and a barn.. But during WWII, these buildings were used to house radar equipment and staff who were tasked with detecting any Japanese aircraft who may have had intent to bomb the US mainland. It was originally designated as Radar Station B-71, and worth a quick stop if nearby.

Stayed at Mill Creek Campground and hiked this trail from our campsite. The trail was closed in areas due to downed trees and bridges out but we were able to navigate through it pretty well. Hike from our campsite was 7 miles through beautiful old trees and scenery.

Just went directly into hidden beach. The trail is nice and maintained with no issues. On the way back we took the Yurok loop which a nice walk too.

Was a bit steep and overgrown in places but a beautiful view all the way down.

Wouldn’t rate this as easy and some spots are narrow and a bit tricky. Beautiful views and not crowded. Bring a picnic, there are tables near the parking area.

This was a short and sweet hike - absolutely beautiful ocean views, with a steep climb down and back up. The upper parking lot had great views as well, but at the viewing platform at the end of the hike we could see more of the rocky cliffs, and more seals swimming. We would do it again if we were in the area again.

I just did the one mile hike (roundtrip) down to hidden beach at sunset and it was amazing. Except the part where my GoPro fell out of my pocket. I realize it's a long shot but If anyone finds it I would forever be grateful. As far as the hike itself, slippery in spots and overgrown as well. But once you get to the beach that will all be forgotten, Enjoy!(kevinbarrels@gmail)

This trail seems less traveled. A bit of everything on this diverse trail with alders at each end. Lots of huge skunk cabbage near the pond at the beginning, and more banana slugs and trillium than I can recall spotting in a single hike. A little muddy in spots - April after a particularly wet winter and spring. At one point as you near the outlook, the ocean waves’ crashing is astounding, louder than when you are at the actual outlook. Thought this would be more steep but really it’s not, and once you hit those last 2 miles back it’s all downhill or flat. Tons of wildlife, plants, Moss and fungi, probably because it isn’t very populated. Definitely 9 miles out and back and definitely will be doing this one again on a sunny day for the views once you hit the ocean.

great trail and spot. trail is like a creek bed most all the way. beach is very cool.

hiked this gem today. best to start from the northern end so you hike the uphill section first. lots of peaks at the beach for the 1st mile and hidden beach is perfect. did not see a soul except at parking areas. trail in fair shape with no big issues.

Very touristy, but it's a fun trail - short and easy for visitors of all ages.

We just went directly to Hidden Beach which was a beautiful and easy one mile walk. The AllTrails map is not really accurate for this one, as it shows Hidden Beach much further down than it really is. If you park in the Lagoon Creek parking lot and start on the Yurok Loop Trail, you’ll see signs for Hidden Beach. We didn’t see anyone out there, so this was just a spectacular place to end our day and watch the sunset.

This leads to a beautiful outlook. I would rate this moderately difficult as there is a significant descent to the outlook and ascent back to the trailhead. It took us around 30 minutes round trip.

The mysteries of this trail beacon. It begins at an overlook of the mouth of the Klamath River. Shadowy corridors pull you into a lush forest. Vistas from lofty ledges above the ocean can make your heart pound. The focal point of a secluded beach is a tree-topped sea stack. Ocean wave swirl around a impressive off-shore rock. The trail ends at the False Klamath Cove. The cove lends it name to the off-shore rock. I put together a video of this hike at

It was a very easy trail once was enough I love the trees!!

Hidden Beach is a gem!! Easy trail with some redwoods lots of fern and great air!

We passed the trailhead twice before actually finding it. It was late afternoon, around 4:30 when we started. The beginning is all downhill, it’s a pretty easy descent. You can hear the waves throughout the trail and it’s really wonderful. There are parts of the descent that are dicey, I had to watch my footing from a steep fall off. We didn’t run into anyone on the trail at all on the way down. When we got down to the beach, it was pretty misty and it added to the eerie feel. It was so secluded and quiet, with only the waves and the trees and it was thrilling yet terrifying. The way back up was a lot more challenging than I was expecting, but I didn’t seem to mind the drop offs on the ascent. Overall, despite the steep incline on the way back up, it’s a cool, short trail with rewarding views at the end. I’d probably do it again.

Hadn't noticed this before. You can actually take the tram as well to see parts of the trail from above.

As of August 2018 a bridge is down, so this trail is closed.

this is a great little hike to see the ocean hand if it's not foggy the river. steep up and down for less than a mile. but when you get to the Overlook the stairs to climb up are in very bad shape. regardless well worth the hike.

Fun easy trail. Great views, especially at sunset.

We drove from Texas to hike this trail. Great setting with giant trees in a rain forest and the Pacific Ocean. The hidden beach a half mile from trail head is a bonus. Beautiful.
