Open daily from dawn till dusk, Gualala Point Regional Park is popular with day hikers and picnickers, and even offers a beautiful setting for small weddings. This lovely park encompasses almost 200 acres of peaceful meadows, dramatic coastal forests and delightful sandy beaches. The Gualala River runs lazily through it, and offers limited seasonal fishing (check the local regulations). The park also has an intimate, well-maintained campground situated among the majestic redwood trees and adjacent to the river.
Gualala Point Regional Park offers 2.9 miles of coastal trail along bluffs, through meadows, and above the Gualala River. Gualala Point Beach is easily reached via a dirt trail or ADA accessible paved path, and in general the trails throughout the park are relatively flat. Dogs are permitted on a leash no longer than 6 feet in length, and must be licensed. There are picnic areas scattered throughout the park, some with barbecues, and restrooms with flush toilets. The park has an informative Visitors Center featuring exhibits that showcase the history of Northern California, turn of the century logging, and Native American displays.
