Ascent Trip Report

David and I needed a moderate-length peak to get a little bit back into shape after a long time away from hiking. I had saved Peak 1390, a straightforward public hike in Big Basin Park. We parked at Waddell Beach on CA Highway 1, where it was cool and breezy. We walked along the paved road to the overnight parking lot, then along the Skyline-to-the-Sea Trail for 1.5 miles to a signed intersection with the Clark Connector Trail, which led uphill for 0.9 miles. Reaching the ridge, we turned right and ascended steeply, finally reaching the nondescript peak after 4.6 miles total. There was a partial view of the ocean here. It’s possible to continue on the trail to Chalk Peak, which we had visited last year.

At the bottom of the Clark Connector Trail on the way down, we turned left and crossed Waddell Creek on a seasonal bridge. A sign directed hikers to return to the beach via the trail, but we took the more level road back. A dozen or so parasailers were in the water by the time we returned.
