We continued north past the countless beaches along the Sonoma Coast before turning left toward Goat Rock Beach. The terrain around Goat Rock beach seems almost monolithic in nature as there are giant boulders and rock outcroppings in the midst of open bluffs.
Just off the coast is Arch Rock which tends to draw the attention of most people passing by.
After taking a stroll on the beach we got back in the car and drove along the Russian River to Monte Rio before looping back on the Bohemian Hwy and heading home.
The area around Goat Rock Beach offers several hiking trails and I definitely recommend checking them out.
