Kortum Trail One More Time

We’ve been walking the Kortum Trail for years and have posted many times. Click Kortum for a sample of walks. Due to getting a dog – dogs are not allowed on this trail – and now with my knee surgery – we haven’t visited recently – but the draw was strong.

Starting at Shell Beach and using my walking poles, I managed to walk to the end of the first boardwalk.

The entire Kortum Trail goes from Goat Rock near Jenner to Wright’s Beach. Most of it is cliff top, with a couple of dips to the beach. From Shell Beach parking lot heading north one could go a mile without any elevation challenges – if that is a concern for you as it has been for me.

Since I couldn’t travel far, I did look at the vistas and took time to notice many bees working the thistles.

I love this part of the trail because it is more raw nature than I usually get to see. It’s an excellent place to walk in the fall without the summer’s fog.

Don’t forget more Kortum walks and crossing Hwy 1 to go up to Red Hill or over to Pomo Canyon.

See you on the trail!

  1. I know exactly what you’re going through with the knee. I had my left one replaced 8 years ago. That recovery was hard, but totally worth it. Good for you with the walks!
