“a treasure trove of sea glass!”
The sand at this unusual beach is covered with interesting-shaped and colored rocks and stones.
I realize the reviews here are 4 years old.... after I drove here. So let me give you a updated review. There is nothing here anymore. The beach is fenced off and all other entrances have no significant glass. I wouldn’t waste my time here. There are signs that say no collecting yet there are people here with buckets and knee pads. What a disappointment.
It's not celebrating garbage; it's celebrating that the earth, through all our attempts to pollute and destroy it, can turn out mistakes into something beautiful.
We had such a fabulous time finding treasures. The path splits in two, be sure to take the one marked difficult route, not the easy route if you want to find lots of sea glass.
*see posted photo 10/3/18 No access to The Glass Beach, it is completely fenced off. The surrounding landscape is beautiful! Nice paved walking path and easy to use sand pathways.
harrison lake, there is a cabin the owners pasted on to their son years ago the locals made a pool beside it and many smaller hot tub size pools ( the spring water on the side of the hill is bubbling with natural hot springs ) its hard to find been there once it is up the mountain side you must travel across a fast running spring water (small river seasonal ) o ya you will not make it in winter to much snow wish I had more on it I had heard of it for a long time and finally made it one spring you drive up the middle of a fast running creek water was up to the bottom of the windows of the jeep i had borrowed. location right side of BC harrison lake turn before dear and hicks lake about an hour climb or drive best I can do thanks.
Just went here, beach looks nothing like that. Most people have taken the glass, its a nice beach but not like the pics of nothing but glass pabbles, its mainly just rocks, shells sand and some glass pebbles here and there.
I was just there. It doesn't look like that. The beach is spectacular, but it does not look like that.
We were there this past Summer and loved it. Can't wait to go back
The glass pieces are smaller than I expected, but with the right lighting they photograph nicely. There are many hiking trails around the area and the craggy shore is beautiful. You can still see remnants of the old trash left behind. There is access to the beaches, but its not obvious. I would come here again!
My partner and I spent the day here on a roadtrip through California and had the best time.
Come when the tide is low to see the glass. Great tide pools on the Rocky and sandy cliffs. Bring a chair and a book to watch the water move. There were many families with children.
Parking is limited but there are many nearby streets if you’re up for a walk. Wouldn’t recommend for wheelchairs or strollers as the beach is made up of little coves.
The bathrooms are horrific (when open) but other than that: it’s perfect.
