Sandra Dee K. on Pomo Canyon Red Hill Trail
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.
