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.
Free. Parking lots are clearly marked on the west side of Highway 1.
Please stay on marked public access trails as other paths and roads within The Sea Ranch are privately owned. RVs and trailers are not allowed in parking lots.
