Furlong Gulch Beach in Bodega Bay, California
Furlong Gulch Beach is a Sonoma Coast State Park located where Furlong Gulch Creek drains into the Pacific. It is between Shell Beach and the north end of Wrights Beach. Furlong Gulch Beach isn’t big, but it’s a picturesque spot with many rocks and seastacks in the surf, especially looking north.
To get there, turn off Highway 1 onto Carlevaro Way a few miles south of Jenner. After turning onto Carlevaro Way the road splits. Turn north onto Grill Way where a trail to Furlong Gulch Beach begins. The south road goes to a trailhead for the Kortum Trail which heads to Wrights Beach in 0.8 miles.
Wrights Beach has a great campground if you want to camp along this stretch of the Sonoma Coast. The Kortum Trail also heads north all the way to Blind Beach and Goat Rock Beach. It’s a great hike on a clear day. Don’t swim in the waters here as the currents are too strong.
