Kolmer Gulch Trail Professional Review and Guide
"You can see evidence of the San Andreas fault by hiking an overgrown logging road from Fort Ross Road to Kolmer Gulch. Along the way, you pass through the Stanley S. Spyra Memorial Grove, the world’s oldest second-growth redwood forest, then through open grasslands and mixed forest. Take the Upper Kolmer Gulch fork to reach Kolmer Gulch Camp, a secluded picnic area, or the Lower Kolmer Gulch fork to hike as far as Highway 1. Either direction offers plenty of solitude, and is a great hike for days when strong winds discourage you from hiking the exposed coastline."
--Stephen W. Hinch, Hiking & Adventure Guide: Sonoma Coast & Russian River (Wilderness Press).
