A North Coast Gem

Walking trails, sculptures, rocky cliffs and a long, wide sandy beach make up this State Park. It is perfectly situated between Gualala and Sea Ranch.

We were pointed to the Russian totem poles and kept on walking. Didn't get to complete the loop, wished we had. With luck you see whales (we didn't)

Gualala Regional Park -- Expansive beach at low tide and lots of spots where the Gualala River feeds into the Ocean, good kayaking. The park trails are pretty flat and weave through meadows and with deer, egrets and hawk. Stop by the visitor center to learn about more wildlife and some of its earliest human settlers, sit outside at the... More

Stopped after lunch at the parking lot and eventually found the trail to be able to access and enjoy the seaside walk. The beach and cliffs are beautiful but watch out even in July that water is very cold. Very quiet walk together with only a few other people passing by during the hour that we walked.

Perfect for the beack, hiking, relaxing and exploring. Have visited many times and each was a new experience. If you like the area this is a perfect place to relax and take in the views. Lots of native animals as well as some beautiful plants.

This is a lovely place in which to just wander down a path and relax. There are picnic tables and hawks! It doesn't get any better than that, does it?

This seems more like a state park. It has a good, if small, visitor center (and restrooms nearby). From the visitor center you have lovely views of the river flowing into the ocean with benches for resting. Good variety of terrain and scenery. You can take a mostly flat walk thru a meadow to fabulous ocean bluff vistas. There is... More
