Parking lot full with lots of people enjoying warmer temps on bright sunny day. Didn't see other wildlife/birds besides seagulls and crows.   Saw some beach debris, including wooden pallet and plank.

Arrived today around mid tide as it was on its way out. The large fallen tree that usually greets people near the base of the parking lot steps is now gone. Not sure if it was removed by people; my guess is that the recent king tides pulled it out as most more

Very nice day at the beach, low tide and it was still falling, one dog owner didn't seem physically able to clean up after their pets (two dogs that I cleaned up after).  I was plesantly surprised by the small amout of human trash left on the beach after a busy Saturday.    read more

Beach access has been improved to the stairs leading onto the shore.  The final stairs are still being completed, work seems to have been started by OPRD early June. However, the final steps remain unfinished.  Access is still rough for those with mobility issues or small children.  Lots of more

Beach access is currently closed due to a slide that removed the trail. There were zero humans on the beach and two cars in the parking lot. Areas south along the bluff to Red Rock creek appear to have slid as more

Quiet, calm and mostly clear morning on Mile 310 - Arcadia Beach. Only a few walkers with their dogs. Beach was quite clean of human trash - looked good in that respect since this mile gets a lot of day trippers. Driftline consisted of a fair amount of small more

Pleasant mid week day during spring break week - part sun and clouds but with a fairly stiff breeze. A lot of people on the mile - approx 55 with 9 dogs. But everyone seemed to be respectful of the mile with little trash noted. Overall the mile was more

Gorgeous Monday afternoon with considerable number of people on the mile. A bit more debris compared to last report but for early summer not bad at all. Est 3 - 5 feet of sand already in since winter. Need to keep eye on several large new homes being built more

Beautiful mid week day at the mile - only one couple on the mile with their two dogs. Mile was extremely clean with minimal tideline debris. Prior winter high tides have brought in quite a bit of drift wood of all sizes. Sand levels aren't much lower than last more

The weather was fabulous leading to very heavy crowds this Sunday afternoon. Day use parking lot(Arcadia wayside)exceeded capacity. Surf was flat. The north side of mile 310 gets a lot of day use throughout the summer but the mile was quite clean of human trash (beach clean up the more

Mile was very clean from both human and natural debris - a few more plastic bottles at highest most driftline. Overall, sand has redeposited about 2'to 3' since last report. That plus the brisk north wind over several days has left the mile quite clean appearing. No immediate more

Weather was ever changing (hail/rain at start of walk and sun at the end). Reasonably fresh deer carcass close to north end. Very old rusted car chassis at south end probably uncovered with lower sand level, and an old rusted engine about 300 yds from the chassis. Both largely more
