Take a Beach Walk
Six public access trails within The Sea Ranch are open to the public, and lead directly to the beach. Maintained by Sonoma County Regional Parks, the trails start at Highway 1 parking areas and cut across bluffs to panoramic views of the coast. You can descend to the beach below via pathways or staircases, and picnic, go tide pooling, or watch sea birds.
