LOVELY VIEWS AND TRAILS

There is a paved trail that goes down to an expansive beach area. Also, there are bluff-top hiking trails that run several miles. Good whale-watching area.

Yes, you'll need to get out of the car and walk down the hill to the beach. But it's well worth it! Small but nice visitor center. The view and the sound of the waves pounding the beach is awesome. Take shoes to walk in the sand. Small fee to park your vehicle.

This is an amazing park with features ranging from full frontal ocean view and beaches, to river head (Gualala River), to access to the wooded, mystical waterfall-laden Salal Trail on The Sea Ranch next door, to dramatic bluff top, well kept trails, to recently carved totem poles from a native tribe in Russian. Must see!

Being a local to this area, I walk the trails here several times a year. Great views of the ocean, Gualala River and the town of Gualala and beyond. I can't imagine not having this beautiful state park to visit.

There is a seven dollar charge to park inside the park - it was worth it for me. You can drive right to the visitor center and park at the start of the lovely trails that go along the bluff and down to the beach. Bring a picnic and enjoy one of the many benches and picnic spots throughout. If... More

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!
