Two weeks after an epic storm of rain, wind and waves that badly damaged Seacliff State Beach, California State Parks opened the lower beach day-use area on Jan. 21 to pedestrian traffic only.
“This was a big team effort from all programmatic areas of the Santa Cruz District, State Park staff,” said State Park Superintendent Joe Walters.
People who want to visit the beach will have to park in the upper day-use lot to access lower Seacliff or come in on foot or on bike from other access points.
Walters shared several photos showing staff working to prepare for increased public access to the lower Seacliff State Beach day-use area by pedestrians.
