Cliff at China Beach at High tide

Nat. Bridge Viewpoint to Thomas Ck and Lone Ranch to 101

I got up late and totally screwed up reading the tide tables--high tide was at 12:30 PM, not low tide at 10:30 AM! I was counting on getting to China Beach to round the cliff at low tide, instead I got there about at high tide. But the waves lapped at the cliff and I sneaked through as a wave pulled away. So it is passable pretty close to high tide. No one was at the beach. I have been surprised how deserted the beaches have been. A tire filled with rocks marked the exit from China Beach. I went partially out to the North Island Viewpoint and doubled back. I wanted to finish the section from Lone Ranch to 101. The trail was confusing up in the trees. You pass right by some houses. Good views through the trees. The description for leaving the beach is right on in "Day Hiking the Oregon Coast".
