About Blind Beach in Jenner, California

Blind Beach is located south of Jenner and the Russian River in Sonoma County. It’s a long narrow beach that is great for beachcombing and fishing. Offshore is a large rock with an arch in it (Arch Rock) and many other photogenic sea stacks.

To get there, turn onto Goat Rock Road about a mile south of the Russian River Bridge. There is an upper parking lot with a steep narrow trail that descends to Blind Beach, but this lot is closed off sometimes. In the same area there are shoulder spots outside the upper lot for a few cars. Alternatively you could continue to the large lot at the base of Goat Rock and walk south onto the north end of Blind Beach.

The Kortum Trail begins from the road just south of the upper parking lot and follows the bluff south past rocks known as the “Sunset Boulders” and Shell Beach on the way to Wrights Beach about three miles away. This makes a pleasant out-and-back hiking route with lots to discover along the way. Goat Rock Beach, Blind Beach, and Shell Beach are all part of Sonoma Coast State Park. Stay away from the dangerous waves and don’t swim in the ocean in this area.
