Salt Point State Park occupies 6,000 acres along the Sonoma County shoreline about 23 miles north of the town of Jenner, or, roughly, a 2.5-hour drive from San Francisco. Highway 1 divides the park, providing convenient access to the existing Gerstle Cove and Woodside campground and day-use facilities. Salt Point State Park is one of the very few low, coastal terraces where there is relatively easy access to the water's edge for fishing, diving, and exploring that is found along the north coast of California. No matter which outdoor recreational activity you are looking for, you will most likely find it at Salt Point State Park where the land meets the ocean, creating breathtaking views to the whispers of the wind. The park offers over 20 miles of picturesque trails for nature connoisseurs ranging from martian-like wind and water carved sandstone formations known as the tafoni to kelp-dotted beaches and breathtaking tidepools to grasslands and pygmy forest overlooking the Pacific.
