Take State Highway 1 to Bodega Bay, turn onto Harbor Way just south of downtown Bodega Bay and follow the signs to the trailhead parking.

A steep half-mile trail leads to a spectacular view of hidden coves and rock formations. Fishing is excellent but challenging. A perfect place to spend an enjoyable day for picnicking, sightseeing and relaxation.
