We loved this hike! Caught a beautiful hot day out in Bodega and started at Wright’s beach and went all the way out to Goat Rock & back. We went a slower pace and stopped at a couple beaches, checked out the tide pools. About 4.2 hours- walking with a recovering ACL. Stopped to take many scenic pictures as well. Stopped on the way out at the Fishetarian for the best clam chowder in Bodega Bay. They have great waterfront picnic tables.

Beautiful views. Love the foggy view and all the birds around!
The beaches is considered very dangerous in this area. Be careful!

nice easy trail with great views. . .

Did not walk the cliff, but went to the tide pools. Overlook is very close. Great place to fly a kite. Plenty of parking.

Beautiful overlook and well maintained trails. It is a popular spot to visit with lots of parking.

A great trail! lots of variations in the terrain. the views were amazing and was perfect with some up hill and down hills. will do this one again maybe running it. 6.7 mile loop.

We parked on willow creek road and hiked up Pomo canyon and back which was awesome. We hiked up through the redwoods, through the golden valley to enjoy vistas of the ocean as we neared Shell Beach. We stopped off at the rock overlook and enjoyed some snacks before heading back the way we came. Next time we’ll check out Red Hill; it was getting close to sunset so we stayed on what we knew to ensure we hiked out with plenty of light.

Beautiful easy trail. Wonderful views.

We parked at Shell Beach, where they have a restroom. We hiked about 2 miles to a peak with a great view of the shoreline on either side. Then returned to Shell Beach, for a total of about 4 miles. It was fairly flat, but not handicap accessible the whole way. The last portion leading up to the peak was quite steep. A great hike.

Taylor Mountain is practically my gym. I use this trail as a fantastic cardio workout after work, as it really only takes about an hour as a moderate pace (trail running, not just hiking) and the vertical gain is quite intense for what is offered around. Once you hit the right spot, its about a thousand feet climbing steep grade with not much break at all. The views at the top are quite nice, as you get a view of both the Santa Rosa area as well as the Kenwood areas around back. Be ready to run into people, as this trail is generally fairly populated, and bring lots of water as there is none on the trail and shade is quite minimal. Overall a fantastic quick hike to add to every wish list!

Good climb.

Nice 8.2 mile hike. Some parts are steep, but nothing over the top

Nice sceneries, easy access paths to small beaches along the trail.

Rated as moderate but it’s actually a pretty good challenge

We decided to continue hiking on the first trail to the left, about half way on this trail and hiked all the way out to where it comes back out on the lake. It’s only a few miles but the various switchbacks are pretty killer if you go that way and it is not a loop trail. This was a little while before I got the app so I was not ready for it. Very pretty though!

Good views from the top. More moderate than we have expected.

Beautiful trail (would be amazing in winter and spring when water was running in the creek), but hikers need to be prepared for the amount of climbing or descending (depending on which way you travel). The 1000 feet of elevation change is accomplished over MANY stairs created with wood, dirt, and rock. While I was able to handle the descent, the uneven wood and boulders were tough on the knees and ankles.

Kortum Trail was extremely scenic and picturesque!! If it's your first time it's worth taking your time so you can stop and enjoy the views. Ideal for easy trail running too. From certain spots along the trail you can access the beach. The listing for this is tagged with: "no dogs" but I saw several people with them (all on a leash)!!
Ample parking is available in a few lots, as well as basic, public restroom facilities.

One of the best hikes I’ve ever been on!

This is the shorter version of lake Anza. Not really a hike, just walking round a small lake though. Do the other hike

Great with kiddos or visitors.

GREAT TRAIL. ENJOYABLE THINGS TO LOOK AT. WOULD HIKE AGAIN.

Love this climb. It’s a great workout. Go early as little shade and gets warm. Dogs on leash. Wide trails until closer to top. Can be busy weekends. Take lots of water...esp for pups.

Nice leisure hike with mild elevation. Saw a deer in the bush, too!

Nice shaded paths, pretty much dry this time of year.
