go 8 miles north of Ft Bragg on Highway One. Park on the south side of bridge over Ten-Mile River, at the foot of the big sand dunes.
The scenic Ten Mile Beach Trail, also referred to by locals as the MacKerricher Haul Road Trail, is part of an old road used to transport lumber from the Ten Mile River watershed to a mill in Fort Bragg. It begins at the Pudding Creek Trestle near downtown Fort Bragg and ends at Ten Mile River (so named because it is located 10 miles north of the Noyo River). It hugs the Pacific coastline, traveling across a unique and environmentally sensitive sand dune area.
