Scenic

Explore the rugged coastline south of Point Arena Lighthouse. Well maintained trails and fantastic views!

Along Point Arena Lighthouse Road there is an access trailhead to Stornetta Public Lands, which is part of the Bureau of Land Management system. There is a wonderful coastal trail that offers great views of the rugged coastline. From the trailhead, you will be walking south across an open field with views all around. I walked about 2.5 miles out and back. The trail went on further. I wish I had the time to explore more. During my hike I saw very few people and had a nice encounter with two deer grazing along the trail.

There is no map at the trailhead so use good judgement if you are walking out at sunset. Either bring a headlamp or return while there is still enough light. This is a day use area only. No camping or overnight parking is permitted.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
