Some reviewers have placed this park "south of Jenner", but nope, this is just south of Gualala and the Gualala River, and is actually located in the northwest corner of Sonoma County. It's a great, but long hike to the beach. Watch for Ticks! Parking,...More

Went there so grandchildren could play on beach. That was not safe. They went to another park. We did spend about an hour walking on paved trails. Beautiful. Visitor center was not open. $7 fee.
