First Day Hike: New Year at New Brighton

Join us for a negative tide and sunset stroll on a 2-mile roundtrip adventure from New Brighton State Beach to Capitola at low tide. Walking this stretch of beach just before sunset is rarely possible, so you won't want to miss it. This staff-and-volunteer-led hike will meet on the sand at New Brighton State Beach just below the day use parking lot. Bring water, snacks, and proper footwear—feet may get wet. We will encounter interesting geological features in a coastal bluff, 5-million-year-old whale fossils, shell fossils, tide pool creatures such as crabs, chitons, anemones, small fish, and the elusive octopus, and cover the natural history of the area. We will return to New Brighton around 4:00 pm, and may remain on the beach until sunset. No pets, please. Participants must be able to walk across uneven terrain.

For cancellation information, please call the New Brighton State Beach kiosk at (831) 464-6329.
