The Coastal Trail is an 8 foot wide paved trail along the coast of the town of Fort Bragg, stretching North and South. Great for walking and biking and very family friendly. The trailhead and parking lot are located at the west end of Elm Street adjacent to Glass Beach. The trail winds through miles of carefully restored coastal bluffs that were hidden behind fences of the former mill site for a century. Trail is open dawn to dusk.
