Don’t let the winter blues keep you from going outside especially with this unusually mild winter we are having. If you have not hiked the Northern Sonoma coast you will be pleasantly surprised at the myriad of flora, fauna, trails and seaview vistas! TAKE A HIKE with our friend, Margaret Lindgren, master hiker, blogger and owner of “Unbeaten Path Hiking Tours”. She would be thrilled to be your guide! Margaret loves hiking in the winter because the coast is clear with fewer fellow hikers along the way. The open, empty beaches, meadows and redwoods forests become your very own playground. Try Unbeaten Path's Bowling Ball Beach tour and enjoy tide pooling and its geological wonders (see bowling ball beach tour pic of round rock formations called concretions - wow!). Or explore the beautiful Salt Point coastline with its "tafoni" rock formations on the Salt Point Tour (and a favorite picnic spot. We can pack a lunch for you). The waves in winter are also fantastic to see - like watching a fireworks show. If it's windy or a bit rainy - the redwoods provide protection and a fantastic view from the ridge. Visit Unbeaten Path Hiking Tours website for more information, guest reviews, photos, tour descriptions and more. Margaret can even customize a tour to meet your needs.
So yes, we know the cozy fireplace in the lobby is tempting, but if you can drag yourself off the sofa, you will not be disappointed with the view. The fireplace and a nice glass of wine will be there when you get back, we promise.
