Stillwater Cove Regional Park Stockhoff Creek Loop Professional Review and Guide
"Stillwater Cove Regional Park encompasses 363 acres between Salt Point State Park and Fort Ross State Park. The park sits amid pine-covered hillsides, while perennial Stockhoff Creek flows through a canyon filled with redwood, fir, and red alder. Stillwater Cove, situated at the mouth of the creek, is a gorgeous beach protected by 100-foot cliffs. The historic Fort Ross Schoolhouse sits in a tree-lined meadow in the hills above Stockhoff Creek. The one room schoolhouse was originally erected on the bluffs adjacent to the village of Fort Ross in 1885 and was active through 1920. It has since been moved to the present site and restored. This hike explores the forested canyon, climbs to North Meadow and the schoolhouse, and returns to the scenic beach cove. Within the park is a picnic area and campground."
