Third Beach to Oil City Your online resource for hiking, climbing and travel
This is a great two day backpacking trip if you go one way. Or, you can see the best of the hike by a one day out and back from Third Beach to Toleak Point. An easy 1.3 mile trail takes you to Third Beach. You can enjoy a nice time there or continue south a half mile to Taylor Point and a waterfall crashing onto the beach. From there, climb the overland trail (some rope ladder climbing) and put yourself on a beautiful remote beach with better and better beaches as you hike to Toleak Point. Camping near Toleak Point is exciting, especially if you can get there in nice weather in winter when nobody may be around for miles. The beach continues on south to Oil City with a few overland routes here and there.
