Need to amend the trail description to reflect the fact that dogs are NOT permitted on Bodega Head trails. This area, especially the beach sections, is considered to be habitat for the federally listed western snowy plover as well as habitat for the long-tailed weasel. Plenty of other beaches to walk your dogs but NOT this one!

Great place to explore the coast. Not a long trail, and very easy.

This trail goes along the breathtaking Sonoma Coast in Bodega Bay. We walked with our dogs and baby stroller. There are some areas where Milk Thistle impedes travel. I got a few pokes but nothing major. We saw three dawns and two does while hiking.

NOT a dog friendly trail. Dogs not allowed on trail. But it's a great short trail with great views

Beautiful view, but because of the cliffs I would not call it kid friendly.

Hiked 4/14/17: This is the most scenic walk/hike I've ever been on! It was windy, but clear blue skies and so many wildflowers this time of year. It's really only a walking trail, but we went off trail which added a little intensity and distance. You must take the stairs/ladder down to the beach...there are several picnic tables in the parking lot overlooking the beach. There are also restrooms.

THIS IS NOT A DOG FRIENDLY HIKE. Drove 2 hours to get here with my dog and he wasn't allowed on the trail.

I loved this area. Lots of beach area to play in and a lovely ocean view the entire walk. It's windy so dress appropriately. The coast line is gorgeous and the ground has cool formations. I highly recommend it.

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
