Report Details

A landslide started near the top of the bluff at Cascade Head and swept hundreds of trees into a pile at the shoreline. Some trees and a lot of dirt have been swept into the ocean. I believe this occurred within the past two weeks, based on conversation with another pilot who flies this route frequently.
