Steelhead Beach is a popular destination for summer fun on the Russian River. Swimming, paddling, sunbathing, picnicking, and barbecuing are favorite activities here during warm months. Fishing, birding, and wildlife viewing are popular activities year-round.  

Canoes and kayaks can be launched from the beach year round while a launch for larger craft is available from October through mid-May. The seasonal launch requires purchase of an annual access permit ($45 recreational or $75 commercial.) The permit includes a gate key that also allows access to the seasonal launch at Wohler Bridge.

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.
