“Wonderful view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Unique rocks to climb and watch the surf for the moderately sure footed. View from above worth it if you can't, or are not inclined to manage the short hike.

“A quiet corner by the sea!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

The drive from Bellingham to the parking lot the allows you to access Clayton Beach is beautiful. The trail is an east walk down to the beach and we go any time during the year. If it's cool you can locate your chairs in the protection of the cliffs and still catch some sun. It is seldom over crowded. A great place to bring your beach chair and a book and toys for the kids.l

“Clayton Beach closed to foot traffic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

The foot path has just been closed by the WA State Park Commission siting private property concerns, something to do with unregulated railroad crossing on the path...

“Overcrowded beach”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

This beach was overcrowded when I visited mid summer. There was trash on the little bit of beach that wasn't covered in rock. The view was also not good. There is a long hike before getting to the beach with lots of mud holes. Would not reccomend.

“Wide Vistas!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Miles of sandy beaches where you feel you are all by yourself. Off of Chuckanut Road. Bellingham, a narrow scary winding road with nail biting cliffs and drop offs.
