Report Details

Over the past year (reports intended each time) we have walked and observed this and miles to north and south many times. It would be hard to gauge the increase in people using these beach accesses, because the day to day usage varies so greatly.Notable is the ever larger convocation of surf-ski competition in the summer--I estimated 40 cars and a hundred people at the last one.Daily usage varies from a few (6+/-) to many (20+/-) but does not appear to be much greater over the past 3 or 4 years.Also on the 23rd I walked north through miles 264 and 265 to the Sand Lake entrance. Lots of woody debris at the high tide line but very little man-made debris despite the storm surf raging over the past few days.Occasionally cars entering at mile 263 drive south and leave tracks on the Kiwanda dune saddle in violation of posted "No vehicle" sign.
