Bodega Bay and Fort Ross - Labor day weekend trip

Bodega Bay was a quiet and peaceful trip. The aim of this trip was to enjoy some peace and that is exactly what we did by staying in Fort Ross. There was no cell phone signal in the place where we spent the night - Fort Ross Lodge. It is located 12 miles north of the small town of Jenner (around 20 mins), 2 miles north of Fort Ross State Historic Park. The lodge is directly across the street from Fort Ross store. The lodge has a hot water bath tub for those who want to use it. They provide BBQ areas as well.

Fort Ross State Historic Park is a little park, good for kids probably.

We visited the Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve (17000 Armstrong Woods Rod, Guerneville, CA 95446) which is less tham 20 miles from the lodge. Nice easy trails upto 3 miles, a strenous 5.6-mile trail and a strenous 9-mile trail.

We missed going to Salt Point State Park which has a beautiful beach and some good trails. We instead went to a hidden public overlook area where there were very few people. There was a steep trail of around 0.7 mi to get to the overlook but totally worth the views.
