Pomo Canyon trail still muddy in places and very very overgrown. If you don't like bushwhacking, stay on Red Hill trail for great views and more sun.

Great place and worth the 8 dollars it cost to get in the park. Explore the fort, back paths, and beaches it has to offer. Make sure to hit up the visiter center to grab a map.

Enjoyed a fine walk to Red Hill with lovely vistas and a lot of raptors to observe. Coming back via Poma Canyon however we hit a lot of mud...suggest that leg be avoided until things have a chance to dry out more.

Great views. Lots of wildlife.

We thoroughly enjoyed this hike yesterday to the top of Redhill. The beautiful irises & another sweet wildflowers, the view which was completely panoramic, very few people (of course it was a Monday). Want to go again.

This hike is a 5 mile loop when using the Shell Beach Trail. Park in the parking lot at Shell Beach.(a public bathroom is available here) The trail is at the top of the drive across the road. This trail has a lot to offer. The up's on this trail go on forever! Great workout. I saw signs of coyotes along the whole trail. The redwoods are a great surprise. Once you get back to Shell Beach parking lot, take the trail to the right of the restroom and go to the beach......so fun and a great workout!

First mile from the Shell Beach end, is strenuous but the views of the ocean are well worth it. At near the 1/3 mark there is a great view of the Russian River just at Jenner. Here you have a viewpoint and a picnic table. The rest of the trail (going east to PomoTrail campground) is moderate kicking sprinkled with stream crossings.

Fantastic ocean view. You can see seals and great white waves!
Must check out!

Wonderful and manageable multi layer hike with stunning views.

Suggest Shell Beach to Pomo Canyon and come back on the Red Hill trail.
