The Gualala Bluff Trail is one of the most beautiful spots in Gualala. It affords a wonderful view of the Gualala River Lagoon, Gualala Point Park, and the Pacific Ocean. It is an excellent place to view wildlife. River otters often haul out on the beach or are seen in the Gualala River. Passing whales are often sighted. There are many sea birds; such as, pelicans, gulls, cormorants with each seasonal change.
The trail is nicely maintained with native plants bordering it and benches at a number of sites where visitors can sit and admire the view, meditate and relax. Sunsets are great! Viewing the Gualala River break through to the ocean with the first winter rains is a real treat. Winter wave watching is popular as is spring wildflower viewing.
The trail is just a few minutes walk from downtown Gualala and can be accessed through the Surf Motel parking lot in downtown Gualala. The trail goes behind three motels/inns and other commercial buildings and follows the Gualala River . There are wonderful views of the river and the Pacific Ocean. Parts of it are relatively flat and other parts a bit more challenging.
