This is the un-official way to access Bear beach from Highway 14, if you don't want to do the hike from China Beach. It is through PRIVATE land so be respectful so access is not cut off!
The trailhead is marked with flagging tape on the right hand side of the logging road, about 5 minutes in.
The trail in is flat for the first half, and then you start your way down to the beach. The way down is VERY steep. More so than is typical for the Juan de Fuca. Expect it to be muddy and slippery if it's been raining. Once you're down you come out right at the creek and there is camping to both sides.
From Sooke: Continue west on highway 14 past China Beach, pull out along the highway and park. (Aprox 48°27'35"N, 124°10'11"W)

QuestionI recently tried to get to Bear Beach with no success. I parked along the hwy just north of China Beach, at a Hwy Maintenance Yard? Gravel pit? and walked down the trail though the forest. We got down to the bottom but couldnt find a way down. The path is not very defined. We walked west along the cliffs to Rosemond Creek but no success. Should I head East? Do you have a gps or some suggestions of how to stay on the trail?
