Short little trail from parking lot which is close to the main road. Parking available for maybe 5 or so cars. The waves creep in fast so make sure to never turn your back on the ocean! Little ones will love running free in the sand and throwing rocks into the creek if you walk to the right side of the beach.
The paved path leads to a crumbling hillside. You can scramble down and wade across the creek, or take the also crumbling worn dirt footpath along the creek to a beautiful secret tunnel through the salal bushes. And then scramble down the hillside to wade across the slightly shallower creek.
Stonefield is a serious trip – and there’s way more than the pictures show on Google Maps. The other side of the creek is the actual treasure land, covered in really wildly-colored rockbed formations. The entrance to this (as the creek isn’t always easy to cross) is on the north side of the creek along Hwy 101. (Search for the Upper Lane County Virtual Tour for full details on this access). Walk down that dusty-then-forested path, and you encounter some almost-magical greenery alongside the creek, with a bench and everything. Fossils abound on this northern side.
This is a great beach with lots of rocks. Small parking lot so never too crowded. Peaceful!
Coolest part was the bridge IMO You can do the north or south side of the creek
