Tomales Bay State Park Hearts Desire Beach to Shell Beach

Inverness, California

Tomales Bay State Park: Hearts Desire Beach to Shell Beach Professional Review and Guide

"This hike encompasses three of the Tomales 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 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 a license) are other options. Trails Surface: Single-track dirt trail through woodland from beach to beach."
