Gualala Point Regional Park offers great opportunities to view the magnificent cliffs and beaches of the northern California Coast. I started at the park visitor center, following a trail that led west, parallel to the fence separating the park from Sea Ranch. Once the trail reaches the coastline you are treated to awesome cliff top views. Be sure to follow... More

This is a great little park with a nice small visitor center that has a small mueseum. The path is paved and there are beautiful view of the river and the ocean. This short hike can be extended in to the Bar S ranch that walks along the head lands.

One of many scenic hiking trails along the California coast near Gualala and The Sea Ranch. Looks like locals use it for hiking the loop, walking dogs, getting a nice cardio workout. The trail ends up at the beach, about a mile from the road. There is a $7 parking fee if you drive in, but free parking also available... More

The walk from the camp grounds to the beach is beautiful, the view can't be beat. The beach itself is perfect - we built a driftwood beach bungalow and hung out in it all day. An awesome trip and a perfect day!

Fantastic views of beaches and the ocean. On our walk we saw deer, sea lions and a whale. Nothing to dislike. You can walk for miles.

We spent the day here walking along the trails. We walked out to the beach and walked to the end. The sand is steeper than it looks. We walked along the bluff trail up to Sea Ranch but it continued on. We crossed under the bridge to get to the other side of Hwy 1 and found a beautiful campground.... More

When you come to the north coast, hiking is a must. Wildflowers dotted the landscape-poppies, wild iris, morning glory, etc. The trails are well maintained, there is plenty of free parking, and the scenery is spectacular. When you overlook the Gualala Rive with the ocean in the background, you’d think you are inside a painting. Don’t miss walking everywhere. Be... More

It is dog friendly and they loved it. There are several trails to explore along with beautiful views. One of the trails takes you along some cliffs, while another goes down to the beach. The beach is huge and had giant crashing waves when I was there. You walk to the far end and get to the river. Also saw... More

The park is on both sides of Hwy 1. Go towards the shore for the rugged shore trail or take the exit on toward the river to take the river walk or to reach the camprground.
