Great Trails
The trails are great. Inland or coastal. This is a spectacular spot. Parking is plentiful in winter.

Stunning beauty!
A trip to the Sonoma Coast isn’t complete until you visit this area. Gerstle Cove and the park areas around it have unparalleled beauty. Great places to tide pool, picnic and hike. It’s in the ‘banana belt’ area of the Sonoma coast, so always a few degrees more comfortable. The coves, trails, beaches and vistas are amazing. Lots of bird life - herons, egrets, gulls, condors - along with the occasional deer too.

Choice of Surroundings
You can walk along the flat ocean prairie, climb on the ocean rocks, relax on the beach, or hike uphill into the forest. No big sights to bring crowds. Convenient from Timber Cove and Ocean Cove. The Visitors Center was closed (it had seen better days). There's ample parking around the hill from the Visitors Center.

Watch the whales swim by and hike the coast
If you like walking and the ocean (and there's bouldering near by) then check it out. Also check out the tafoni on the rocks at the shoreline, explore the tidepools, wander through the landscape. Great place to chill out. Also check out Stump Beach Cove, saw seals in the cove and watched fishermen catch lunch. Also saw cormorants nesting in the cliffs.

Highly recommend
We hiked the through the Kruse rhododendron Reserve. Although the the rhododendrons were not in bloom it was a gorgeous trail with redwoods, other natural beauty and foot bridges. It’s an isolated area about a mile off route 1. There is a well marked map at the start of the trail.

lovely walks and views
Worth a stop if you are like us, roaming around the Medecino area and stopping at almost every turn off that offers a beach or a look out or a walk. This one is really dramatic and unspoiled.

There are good hikes here
My wife and I enjoyed hiking to the Pygmy Forest. This is an easy hike on gravel roads, through groves of redwoods, pine and other magnificent trees.

Amazing place. Like going to another planet.
Make sure to go on the trail that goes right by the ocean between the big rock formation and the cove. You will discover some surreal rock formations shaped by the elements into the strangest shapes and forms. Keep an eye for marine wildlife. There is also Fort Ross about 30 min. south of Salt Point. Worth visiting as well.
