Del Norte County

Visitors to the Del Norte County coast will experience a variety of terrain flat beaches, old and now-forested sand dunes and hillsides in the deep shade of tall redwoods. The major theme here is seclusion. Del Norte's one major town, Crescent City, has a population of just 4000. Here the CCT is largely complete, incorporating public beaches as well as established trails. The natural landscape has been preserved in such parks as Tolowa Dunes State Park, Redwood National Park, Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park, and Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park. Two major river crossings at the Smith and Klamath punctuate your journey on the CCT in this pristine area. [Jon Breyfogle]
