Greenwood Creek State Beach, which is west of downtown Elk, offers beach walks and kayaking.
There is a lot of interesting driftwood washed up on this beach, and a large parking area with an outhouse and picnic area at the beginning of the trail down the hill.
The views of offshore rocks looking south from Elk are some of the most beautiful coastal landscapes on the Mendocino Coast, and these rocks are west of Greenwood Creek State Beach.
Long ago, this was a logging port and the many historic photographs at the Visitor Center in Elk offer a window into the rich and interesting past found here.
This location has no cellular reception.
