Cape Kiwanda to Tierra del Mar Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The highlight is the climb up Cape Kiwanda’s sandy saddle— a 120-foot ascent that feels more like 300—and the sliding descent on the other side. Unlike its sister capes to the north, Cape Kiwanda is made of sandstone.

It’s eroding much faster than the coast’s basalt capes, but along the way the waves are shaping its cliffs into gorgeous ocher sculptures. Minus tides in summer expose intertidal life on vertical surfaces of rocks at the cape’s base."
