If you don’t own or aren’t currently renting a home in Sea Ranch, then your walk along this section of Sonoma’s northerly coast will be along Highway 1 and not on the private trail following the beautiful ocean bluffs. You can take public lateral-access trails (as shown on the map) through the private Sea Ranch property to the designated public beaches. If this situation suits you, then look for the unique and peaceful Sea Ranch Chapel just to the east of the highway. It is open to all for contemplation and meditation. [Jon Breyfogle]
