Battle rock beach

Stellar Day to Rocky Point (almost)

I parked at the Battlerock Waypoint just south of Pt. Orford and walked toward Rocky Point, which the guidebook said could be rounded at low tide. Well, I was there at low tide and there was no way I would walk through that jumble of rocks with a cliff between me and the ocean. The walk on the beach from Pt. Orford was very pleasant going south. I discovered the side trail up to Hwy 101 right before the beach end. GPS coordinates: N 42' 43.577" W 124' 28.124". The north wind kicked up around 11 AM, but not as bad as yesterday. I can see why it is best to hike the OCT from north to south. I had a delicious lunch at Redfish Restaurant right next to the Battlerock parking lot on their deck with a view of the entire beach. Humbug Mountain in the distance. I checked out the old 101 trail to Humbug on my way home and Crissey Field. A friendly guy at Crissey Field talked to me about the OCT and how to access it through Crissey Field at the California/Oregon border.
