Sunset at Table Bluff

The breathtaking views at Table Bluff start at Hwy 101. Exit at Hookton Road and take Eel River Drive. (You can get to the ocean faster if you stay on Hookton Road and that is lovely, too, but our favorite route is a little more meandering.)

Turn right on Table Bluff Road and slowly wind through lush farmland until the road ends at the South Jetty or stop at the Table Bluff County Park (basically, a couple of wide spots on the road) for dramatic views.

If you continue onto the South Spit, on one side are the waves of the Pacific Ocean and on the other are the calmer waters of the Humboldt Bay.

The cliffs of Table Bluff are favorite launching areas for hang gliders. If you are lucky, you might get to see some.

This weekend has been so lovely, surely some of you have sunset photos from the area to share in the comment section. We’d love to see them.
