Bodega Head Trail is a 1.8 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Bodega Bay, California that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
It's a beautiful walk on the edge with unforgettable views. Highly recommend no matter what age group you're apart of.
Can you ride a bike easily with a child bike trailer around the trail?
Very simple hike that has great views of rocks and bluffs. Expect to see Pelicans, Cormorants and Seals in summertime
Beautiful and easy hike along the bluffs
A beautiful coastal scene around every corner!
This is a great place to hike. It's really flat and the views over the ocean are spectacular. If you get a chance take this hike it's fabulous.
Awesome place I grew up hiking all the time. I love this place no matter what the weather! The head is nuts up there during the big storms (no pun intended), and don't forget to check out the sweet hobbit (cypress) tree u can go inside of!
Really more of a walk/stroll than a hike but it's still very enjoyable. Go at your own pace, great views on a clear day (this time it wasn't) and some cool interpretive kiosks along the route.
You will not be alone but is well worth the drive. Be prepared to have trouble parking on a nice day!
We did see two whales on this trip.
This is one of my favorite hikes to go on when I just need to get away from it all. They've built up the road a bit in the last couple years to get to it, but they've also blocked the second parking lot. Get there early on a weekend to ensure you don't have to park on the side of the road. I do this one at least once a year in November. It gets a bit nippy but the views are georgous. The last time I did this one was in April 2012. The tall ships were in town so it was really croweded when I left. There is another trail to the right to the "hole in the head" This one has a ver steep incline and I've only done it once. The views aren't as great.
If you are looking to get away with a short hike this is a good one to do. Don't forget to stop by the Tides and get some clam choward to enjoy on Doran Beach before you head back!
Great for whale watching.
