Carrington Coast Ranch

Carrington Coast Ranch Overview

Carrington Coast Ranch offers 335 acres of sweeping views of Bodega Head, Salmon Creek, and the Sonoma Coast from meadows, grasslands, historic springs, ancient Cypress trees, unique canyons, and rolling hills on both sides Coleman Valley Road.

A former dairy ranch, there are numerous photogenic historic buildings (homesteads and barns) awaiting restoration on the property. The two story wood frame house on the south side of Coleman Valley Rd. dates back to the late 19th century and is one of the oldest remaining structures in Sonoma County.

Please Note

Carrington Ranch is currently owned in fee by the Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District, access by guided hike only. It was originally expected to be incorporated into the adjacent Sonoma Coast State Park at some point in the future pending State budget issues. Sonoma County Regional Parks will instead likely take ownership and open it in the near future.
