  • Beautiful spot. I love how the river beach meets the ocean beach. Hard to beat beautiful forest coming right down to the water. Plenty of parking in a rough dirt lot and a port-a -potty too.
  • Stunning coastal scenery.. Reminiscent if Cornwall and Devon in the UK.. Get up early, take your camera and go for a walk around the headland.. Not to be missed.. 😊 πŸ‘ πŸ‘Œ
  • always a great hike and rarely do too many folks stray from their cars... lota of history here... beautiful waves, watΓ¨r, and seal lions sometimes
  • This was more than I could've hoped for in hiking, kayaking, horseback riding, and general tech disconnect from the world for a long weekend. Well worth the long windy roads.
  • Truly stunning views. Visited in mid April and it was so beautiful even though it was 50 degree weather. 5 min walk from downtown Mendocino, very convenient.
