Gold Bluffs Beach is part of the majestic Prairie Creek Redwood State Park. The road to this magnificent beach is unpaved, so don’t be surpirsed if you are the only person around to experience the 10 miles of golden sand and sublime nature. Stop by the visitor center for trail maps and any other additional questions you may have. Waterproof footwear may be needed for some of the trails that can be quite wet. Dogs are not allowed on the park trails but are allowed in the campgrounds and adjoining beaches as long as they are leashed.
