It was foggy, but still beautiful. There were so many wildflowers, and because it was early in the morning it wasn’t super busy. Easy to get and a nice easy walk.

I hit this trail up nearly every time I’m out at Bodega Head. There are ocean views for days when the fog burns off. The trail is super easy,perfect for a relaxing walk/hike to soak up the area’s natural beauty.

Nice, fun hike. It was a little busy but it was fun and well marked. We found a way to scramble down to a little isolated beach that was so great. Not a person in site. Get there early for a decent parking spot before the area fills up.

This trail was very short and very easy. It was percent for a short hike to a beautiful beach. The trail is narrow so it was a little harder to walk with a dog, but not that bad. It was more of a walk than a hike. I was able to wear my flip flops on the way back because of how sandy my feet were. If you’re looking for a hike I would skip this trail but otherwise it made for a nice day on the beach!

Picturesque and breathtaking views of the Pacific with beautiful wildflowers that populate this glorious walk along the well marked and easy trail. Do not skip this hidden gem as you travel along Hwy 1.

Nice short trail. Not too steep of an incline. Easy walk uphill. Family Friendly. Minor walkway maintenance.
If you're looking for an easy brisk ocean side hike. Look no more.

This trail is all soft sand. The entire way. Yuck.

The starting point is not well marked and in the middle of the campground, thus no parking.

Trails to the beach are not marked.

This hikes had some pros and cons. Going down the trial to the beach was scenic but it was short trial.

Well-maintained short hike down to the beach. Lots of tidal pools with starfish, hermit crabs, snails, and anemones during low tide!

Stunning views of the Pacific, Bodega Bay, and the harbor and town.

Half of the trail has steps unevenly spaced...those are always hard on my knees. The beach is beautiful with lovely, large rocks in and around the water and beach.

08Oct2017 Park is under Improvement so there is no place for day use parking. I'll have to try again another day.

Amazing view!

Fun easy pretty views- estimate your miles to take twice as long as it's in sand!

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!

pretty crowded, costs money to get in and park so make the most of it, but is a nice long stretch of beach. don't know why it says no dogs, there's dogs all over the place (not complaining, seemingly very responsible dog owners when I've been)

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.
