The Bird Walk Coastal Access Trail offers those interested in viewing wildlife a unique opportunity to see a new side of Bodega Bay. The Sonoma County Regional Parks Department has revitalized a salt water marsh adjacent to the Bird Walk that is home to thousands of birds throughout the year.

Birdwalk Coastal Access contains 1.19 miles of trail that circles two ponds and offers coastal views along with excellent birding opportunities. After a brief rise from the parking lot, this gentle trail system has a gravel surface that is moderately accessible to wheelchairs. The Cheney Creek Bridge Trail connects Birdwalk Coastal Access to Doran Regional Park.

Accessible features include gravel, wheelchair accessible trails.
