Walk On Beach Sea Ranch Access Trail
Walk On Beach Trail connects to Bluff Top Trail, which leads south to Walk On Beach. Public access to this beach was closed for years due to trail erosion, but repairs were completed in July of 2014 and access is fully restored. Sonoma County Regional Parks manages six public access trails in The Sea Ranch, a private community south of Gualala. Trails start at Highway 1 parking areas and cross bluff-top meadows and forests to rugged coastline. Cliffside staircases lead to secluded beaches with sandy coves, tide pools, and rock formations. In addition to hiking, these public access points offer opportunities for diving, fishing, boating, and wildlife viewing.
