Pinnacle Gulch Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Pinnacle Gulch drains into Bodega Bay at the far east end of Doran Beach, just south of the town of Bodega Bay. The half-mile gulch leads to Pinnacle Beach, a quiet sandy beach cove with a distinctive off-shore rock. The beach, accessed via a trail along the stream-fed gulch, is used mainly by locals . The trailhead is tucked away in a newer housing development by a golf course. The Coastal Access Trail, part of the Sonoma County Regional Parks, leads down the narrow gulch alongside a winter stream to the beach. Pinnacle Rock lies just off shore."
