    Right next to Lee is this small park that will allow you to walk see the ocean and Mendocino, one of the most beautiful city in Northern California. Very interresting remains of mechanisms for loading of the lumberyard in windsurfing (redwoods), complete the ride by the Museum-information center of the city to understand these remains and how the business of the Redwoods has developed and helped the creation of the City and the richness of the area.

    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.. 😊 👍 👌

    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.
