On any given day, The Beachcomber Motel front desk staff provides visiting walkers with the "Ten Mile Coastal Trail" log book to sign their names and join the ranks of the hundreds of people who have walked this trail, which runs along the bed of an old logging haul road and railroad north from the Fort Bragg city limits seven miles to the Ten Mile River.

A multi-use trail for hikers, bicyclists and horse back riders, the asphalt paved trail taverses coastal bluffs to Ward Avenue connecting to State Highway 1. An additional three miles north of Ward Avenue leads to the Ten Mile river through a sand dune complex.

The trail provides one of the longest unbroken whale watching locations on the West Coast along with diverse activities as nature study, fresh and salt water fishing, tidepooling, seal watching and surfing. For more information please visit the Ten Mile Coastal Trail website.
