Both the Land Trust’s Pole Mountain and The Wild Lands Conservancy’s Jenner Headlands are open to the public daily from 8am−sunset. Visitors to Sonoma County’s stunning coast will now have the opportunity to explore at their leisure and free of charge the 15 miles of trails on the spectacular, 5,630-acre Jenner Headlands Preserve and to climb to the top of Pole Mountain, the highest peak along the Sonoma Coast. Parking and access to both preserves will be provided free of charge at TWC’s beautiful new “Gateway to the Headlands” along Highway 1, two miles north of Jenner. Hikers taking up the challenge to summit Pole Mountain from the Gateway parking lot are encouraged to head out early to complete the strenuous, 14-mile round-trip hike on the Sea to Sky Trail by sunset. Remember, it will be open every day! A heartfelt thanks to our supporters whose dedication and generosity through the years helped make this happen.
