Bastendorff Bog trail hike out and back, with some additional hiking in the area.
Make sure you read the hike guidelines below.
The hike will start in the Sunset Bay Day Use area. We’ll hike from there, cross Cape Arago Hwy, go through the campground, and follow the bog trail out to Yoakam Point, which will provide an excellent view of Cape Arago Lighthouse (above), and Bastendorff Beach, as well as our iconic coastal rock formations. We will all then return to the starting point, and those wanting a longer hike can continue, self guided, hiking along the coast to Shore Acres and back. You’ll see some great ocean views and very interesting trees along the way.
Be prepared for any weather conditions, which at this time of year probably means sun, but also some wind. Moderate, ~ 4-5 mostly flat miles.
