Steelhead Beach Regional Park Trails
Steelhead Beach Regional Park is known best for its beach access to
the Russian River. However, this 26 acre park also includes several short
trails that may be connected to make a .9 mile loop through a forested area.
The path is shaded by impressive cottonwoods, big leaf maple, Oregon ash, and
several other riparian species. Restrooms and picnic areas are available at
the parking lot.
