Gualala Point Regional Park Trails

Gualala Point Regional Park offers 2.9 miles of trails along coastal bluffs and above the Gualala River.

From the parking area, the beach is reached via a paved, ADA-accessible trail that crosses meadows of tall grass and forests of gnarled cypress. 

Unpaved paths also cross the headlands to the beach, weaving along the cliffs and offering dramatic views of the sea and offshore rock formations. A bench at Whale Watch Point is a great place to pause and look for migrating whales or enjoy a sunset. 

The unpaved Bluff Top Trail connects Gualala Point to the Salal Trail and The Sea Ranch coastal access trails to the south. The distance via the Bluff Top Trail from Gualala Point to the Walk on Beach coastal access trail is 3 miles one way. 

Gualala Point's campground on the east side of Highway 1 is connected to the park's day-use area on the west side by an unpaved trail that follows the Gualala River and then skirts under Highway 1 before climbing to the parking area near the visitor's center.
