Report Details

This is my first time here. 2 friends accompany me. We descend down the Northside of Otter Point on a badly eroded trail, with the welcome assistance of a rope. See first picture. The stretch is characterized by 50 to 75 ft bluffs topped with trees and occasionally  a private home. This one mile of Coast has suffered terrific damage in recent months .The pictures show landslides, boulder strewn beaches, private staircases damaged and unusable, and one house threatened and undergoing bank stabilization.        Tide was receding during our foggy walk. We saw no others. A beautiful , dramatic area.  The stairs do not belong to the threatened house. The street that serves those houses is S. Chantrelle Ln. The house's coordinates are 42°28'20.79"N. 124°25'15.90"W acc to Google Earth.It seemed that every wooden staircase on that mile was damaged except for one built of metal.

Conditions

Temperature: 55 F. Cloud Cover: Foggy. Wind Velocity: Calm/Light. Tide Level: 3.5 feet.

Concerns

Apparent violations: None.
