Spring Ranch Trail

Local Phone: (707) 962-0470
Spring Ranch is found the northwest corner of Van Damme State Park. This is a very lovely spot, offering spectacular views of the Pacific, and trails that wind above an interesting rocky intertidal shelf.
There is good wildlife viewing here, especially at low tide, when the seals haul out onto offshore rocks, sun themselves, and rest. Along the trail, there are many memorial benches on which to rest, talk and enjoy the view from this wild place.
There are two main entry points for the Spring Ranch trails at both the north and south - west of Gordon Lane on the north end, and near Peterson Street and the inns at the south end.
Dogs on leash are welcome.
Help us keep this trail beautiful and dog-friendly:
• Always follow the posted rules as they may have changed
• If in an off-leash area, keep your dog under voice command
• Respect and protect wildlife and habitats
• Pack in and pack out, leaving only paw prints
