Stump Beach Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Miller Creek begins in the upper slopes of Salt Point State Park along the San Andreas Rift Zone at 800 feet. The perennial creek drains into the sea at Stump Beach. The Stump Beach Trail begins by the beach off Highway 1 and climbs the forested north wall of the Miller Creek canyon to Kruse Ranch Road. The trail is perched on the hillside and weaves through a lush forest of Douglas fir, bishop pine, tanbark oak, and towering redwood groves. The hike offers quiet solitude through a cool coastal forest."
