Cook's Beach - a beautiful pocket beach just north of Gualala
Cook's Beach is found north of Gualala. Drive up Highway One until you reach mile marker 3.14, then turn left at Route 526, which is the old Coast Highway. Just to your right is the entrance path to Cook's Beach. The trail is called Bonham Trail in honor of the Bonham family's easements, which made this access possible.
Below is a view to the south from the overlook on top of the bluff.
The Redwood Coast Land Conservancy brought us this wonderful access. To learn more about them, here's a link to their web site: http://www.rc-lc.org/index.html
