Long sandy beaches below rugged headlands, a craggy coastline with natural arches and secluded coves are features that make Sonoma Coast State Park one of California's most scenic attractions. The Beach, actually a series of beaches separated by rock bluffs and headlands, extends 17 miles from Bodega Head to Vista Trail located 4 miles north of Jenner. Beachcombers, fishermen, sunbathers and picnickers can access the beach from more than a dozen points along coast Highway 1. While the north coast weather can be foggy in the summer, it usually burns off by midday and the cool ocean breezes make the Sonoma Coast a haven for visitors seeking to escape the inland heat.

Beautiful views of the ocean, Russian river and redwoods. Good for trail running, lots of hills but not too steep.

Used to walk this down to fish decades ago. Beautiful area I miss. Used to ab dive just above here as well...

I really liked this trail because it's very diverse. I dont know much about bird watching, but there was a lot of bird action going on which was really impressive.

Fabulous trail that gives views of redwood forest, rolling hills and ocean. Got some great views of wildlife too: lots of hawks, lizards, bunnies, voles, and a snake! The Red Hill trail has more incline than the Pomo Canton trail, so I recommend going out on the Red Hill when you have more energy. Lots of incline so good for a workout!
