Russian Gulch Professional Review and Guide
"Russian Gulch is a stream-fed canyon that begins in the upper reaches of Little Black Mountain. The creek flows through a sheltered valley to the sea and forms a lagoon on the crescentshaped beach. The expansive sandy beach, part of the Sonoma Coast State Park, is bordered by 120-foot vertical cliffs and scattered offshore rocks. This trail begins on the coastal side of Highway 1 and weaves through a thick ripar ian forest to the scenic beach cove."
