Located on the rugged and scenic Sonoma coast, Stillwater Cove Regional Park features more than 3 miles of trails.
From the day-use parking area, the.3-mile Cove Trail leads to Highway 1 and the beach on the other side.
From the parking area, visitors also can access the 1.6-mile Canyon Trail loop along Stockhoff Creek, which supports coho salmon and steelhead trout and curves through a canyon of towering redwoods filled with ferns, rhododendrons and other riparian plants, including the swamp harebell and fringed corn lily native only to the Sonoma-Mendocino coasts.
From the Canyon Trail, a short spur leads to the one-room Fort Ross schoolhouse, which was built at Fort Ross in 1885 and moved to Stillwater Cove Regional Park in 1974 for preservation. Its period decor can be viewed through the windows.
Just north of the cove, along Highway 1, Stillwater Bluff Trail winds above the rocky coastline, offering gorgeous views of the Pacific.
