Kortum Trail is one of the most popular places to walk along the coast. It goes from Wright’s Beach to Blind Beach. I usually walk a shorter piece of the path. Wildflowers on the meadows are best in May. Later in the summer the lupines flower in great cascading lumps down the cliffs. Fall and winter create their own environments of wildness and beauty.

Kortum Trail from Carlevaro Rd to Wrights Beach.
Above Wright’s Beach is a small parking lot with access north to the Kortum Trail.
Many people start at Shell Beach to walk the Kortum Trail. North towards Goat’s Rock or South to Wright’s Beach.
Across Hwy I is access to a walk to Pomo Canyon or up to Red Hill.

Parking is currently free near the trail. Expect that to change. At Wright’s Beach with camping and picnicking the day use fee is $8/day. The lot above the beach is free.

Lynn, I wish I lived in your area. These hikes look absolutely gorgeous, and I’m a walker (not necessarily a hiker) from way back. 🙂 Deb
Walking works. We stop to smell the roses or spot the wildflowers and the quail. – Lynn
