Nice hike, exposed more than I like. Pretty easy, only challenging part for me was climbing the rocky hill towards the end.

Everything promised! If I were to go again, I would bring more water resistant gear, not because of rain but because of high wet brush.

Beautiful way to see the full coast line, hills, and lakes of the area.

14 mile hike with only moderate incline/decline for a third of the trail. Starts off on a fire road along a stream surrounded by ferns, then follows along coastal cliffs with two opportunities to go down to the beach (one has a waterfall), then climbs 1000 ft or so giving great views of Bodega Bay before dropping back down to Bear Valley trail 0.8 miles from the end of the hike.
