Black Point Coastal Access Trail

Sonoma County regional park logo

Sonoma County Regional Parks manages 6 public access trails in The Sea Ranch, a private community south of Gualala. Trails start at Highway 1 parking areas and cross bluff-top meadows and forests to rugged coastline.

Black Point Coastal Access Trail – 0.25 miles one way – crosses the bluffs to a curving, quarter-mile beach reached by a steep staircase. This beach is just north of Black Point cape and popular with surfers. Leashed dogs welcome.

Please stay on the marked public access trails as the other paths and roads within The Sea Ranch are privately owned. Check the website for current parking fees, if any, and seasonal hours.
