Overlook Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This trail leads across headlands covered with ice plant, purple seaside daisies, bush lupine, and coastal scrub/grasslands. From December through April, keep an eye open for migrating whales. Part of this trail traverses the Bodega Marine Reserve, a 326-acre laboratory operated by the University of California. The Reserve is otherwise off-limits to the public, so obey the posted signs and stay on the trail along this portion. You can visit the lab when it is open to the public on Fridays from 2 to 4 p.m.; take the marked road west off Westshore Road."
