Fort Ross North Headlands

Fort Ross North Headlands Professional Review and Guide

"The Fort Ross North Headlands are 100-foot windswept bluffs along coastal Fort Ross State Historic Park. Along the serrated, wave-pounded cliffs are deep, stream-cut canyons and sheltered coves. The hike explores the high marine terrace from Northwest Cape (by the visitor center) to an overlook of Kolmer Gulch Beach, just shy of Windermere Point. The route does not follow a designated trail, but rather traverses the expansive, open coastal plateau along the edge of the grassy bluffs. Throughout the hike are far-reaching vistas, including Sonoma’s Lost Coast and Point Reyes."
