Goat's head beach is awesome. I love this area where the Russian river empties into the Pacific. Jenner must be a crime free community. Been here twice. Beach is so secluded you can take off in all directions and still feel the solitude. Gets a 3 out of 5 because of the heavy surf that prohibit surfing or swimming (stay on top of the berm!).

not really a hike. nice beach on the ocean. lots of seals hang out in the cove area. didn't make it over to goat rock but you could see it from the beach.
