Tomales Bay State Park: Heart's Desire Beach to Shell Beach Professional Review and Guide
"The hike encompasses three of the park’s four beaches. An extra mile gets you to Indian Beach as well. Between beaches, each more isolated than the last, the trail takes you through a thick, damp woodland of oaks, bays, alders, willows, and Bishop pines. On the beaches, you can sort through shells and stones and watch California sea lions poke their torpedo-shaped noses above the water. Clam digging and fishing (with license) are other options. This eTrail also includes suggested nearby attractions, camping & lodging, restaurants, and local outdoor retailers."
