This trail leads .6 miles to a rocky beach backed by high cliffs. It is best attempted at low-tide due to strong surf.

McClure's Beach Trail leads .6 miles from the end of Pierce Point Road to the Pacific Ocean. The trail has a rocky surface and descends 300 feet down a ravine to the water. McClure's beach is a picturesque protected cove backed by rocky cliffs. Dramatic tidal fluctuation and and strong surf make beach combing on this beach hazardous at high tide. Plan your hike to McClure's Beach at low tide and enjoy the tidepools that form there.
