Fog floats above the hills where the river meets the ocean

Jenner Trip Ideas

The small, hillside town of Jenner is the ideal spot to watch nature in action. Stop in to the small general store for some supplies and chitchat, then settle in to enjoy the view. Changing tides and ocean waves compete with the Russian River’s constant flow, creating a sandbar that holds the river in place … for a while. The result is the Russian River Estuary, where birds, freshwater fish, and the harbor seals that make Goat Rock Beach their home all hang out. Feel like taking a stunning hike? Check out the 5,630-acre Jenner Headlands, located north of Jenner.
