Explore the most popular wild flowers trails in Phillip Burton Wilderness Area with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Great opportunity for a long day hike or broken up into a two-day backpacking trip. Horses, coyotes, California condors, tons of little furry friends, and the possibility of seeing Tule elk and whales off the coast!

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

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.
