A GREAT HIKE

Pinnacle pop-up: Hiking, beaches, finding some solitude … if these are a few of your favorite things, this hike-in beach in Bodega Bay is for you. Pinnacle Gulch Beach can't be accessed by car. Reach it via an easy 0.5-mile hike that starts at a tucked-away trailhead. It's a quick descent through a little creek canyon that pops out at a sandy haven ideal for tranquility, tide-pooling and spying birdlife. Views are great, with both Point Reyes and Bodega Head easily visible. [For more details on this and other adventures in Northern California, visit WeekendSherpa.com]
