This 20 acre property is owned and maintained by the Land Trust. This is an amazing white sand beach cove, great for viewing tide-pools during the low tides with no ocean swells. Delicate species survive by withstanding exposure to air during low tides and being submerged under water at high tides. Baker Beach’s ecological habitat consists of an ocean bluff spruce-fir-red alder forest, coastal bluff habitat (probably still used by the elusive mountain beaver), beach tide pools and numerous offshore rocks. This is indeed a unique seashore.
Notice the trail head post and dog waste basket near the informal parking area off Scenic Drive. The trail to Baker Beach is steep and has cable steps at the end.
Basic Rules include: No camping No fires Pick up all trash Pick up after your dog
TRAIL WORK AND RESTORATION
Join our efforts to improve this property for public use and help restore a healthy ecosystem. Sotsin Point is our ocean bluff forest reserve becoming increasingly invaded by non-native invasive english ivy. In photos below, TCLT volunteers work to repair trails and restore native vegetation after July 4 fireworks sparked a fire that burned from the beach up to Scenic Drive.
