North Coast Walking

Double coastal coveNorth of Jenner are a several marvelous spots to enjoy the ocean. You can visit one of them with great wildflowers spring to summer at mile marker 23.82. Unfortunately, two of them are closed due to California State budget cuts, but you can visit them by clicking here.




Fort Ross State Historic ParkFort Ross is celebrating its 200th anniversary in 2012. Some flat walking available and a step back in history. Russians created an outpost here. One original building remains and others are recreated. This site was also a farmstead before becoming a state park. Watch out for special events.





One of my favorite parks is Salt Point. The coastline is beautiful, the rock formations are amazing and there’s a new visual treat around each bend. In the spring this is a fine place for wildflowers. In winter, the journey can be as exciting as the landscape.

Gualala Pt Regional Park At the northern most point in Sonoma County is the town of Gualala. Just south of there is a Sonoma County Regional Park, with flat paved walks, a beach, and campgrounds. This great area also provides access to more trail along the coast by Sea Ranch.

Hope you can find a place you want to spend some time. If not why not let me know your interests at Find a Walk page?

  1. How do I find which walks allow dogs, on leash or off? Would like to specifically be able to look for “off leash dogs ok”. Tried to search for that and got nothing. There doesn’t seem to be any listing for “dogs ok” (leash status unspecified) either. It would be very helpful if your “find this” list included both.

    1. Regional Parks are okay for dogs on leash. State Parks are restricted to parking or campgrounds only, specific to that park. Service animals are okay anywhere. – Not sure if this answers your question. Did forget to put dog on leash for my latest Doran Beach post. Here’s a link about dogs and State Parks.
