Bluff Top Trail to Gualala Point
- Owned By
- To reach the Bluff Top Trail from Walk On Beach Trail, park in the Walk On Beach lot at 40101 Highway 1 and follow the trail west for about .25 miles to the junction of Bluff Top Trail.
- Follow the Bluff Top Trail north to Gualala Point Regional Park. When you arrive at the park, take a break at the Whale Watch Point bench or continue down to Gualala’s beautiful, wide beach.
- On the beach, you’ll likely find large, creative driftwood structures erected by other beachcombers. You also can explore the Gualala River estuary, where the river enters the ocean and seals and sea lions like to haul out.
- Return to Walk On Beach the way you came. This hike is a little more than 6 miles round trip and will take about 2 to 4 hours depending on your pace. The length can be shortened by turning back on Bluff Top Trail any time before you reach Gualala Point.
