This beach was so cute, and the only other people there were surfers, so we didn't have to fight crowds to find a place to sit. Great location for a picnic...we stopped here to have one during a roadtrip and loved it!

The trail is easy to follow and not very strenuous to hike. There's a gradual decline for the first couple of miles but you hardly notice it. At the end of my 13 mile hike when I was heading back up the gradual incline I definitely noticed it though! :)

I loved this trip! The folks at Burke's are amazing and friendly. After your trip they'll give you coupons to save on future trips. The canoe was $60 to rent for the day and the fee covers the canoe, life vests, and paddles. The Russian River was really beautiful and serene...would definitely do this trip again.
