  • From Mendocino village one round up and feeling like coming home on the other side (the school) around the small road is ready, so it along the walk you can. You can also climb some rocks along the way, the staggeringly high. Indeed, dangerous place off-limits had it not feel.

  • Pleasant paths on top with a challenge to descend to water level. Beautiful area which might benefit from more educational and historic signage 
  • Do crashing waves on the Pacific Northwest ever get old? On a recent trip, all we could do was go around and ask the locals if they realized how beautiful their town is. Fortunately, they do.

  • This is a fantastic location to view the Whale migration annually. Also birds,and seals along with sea otters. Occasionally you can see pods of killer whales... though I have not seen any for around 4 yrs. Sunsets are the best also.
  • The views walking along the headlands are absolutely spectacular. The headlands surround the town and so are very accessible. We walked out to the edge of the headland and saw a collapsed see cave. When the waves came in it made a booming sound. You can also access the beach along the river. There were some people cooking a meal, surfers, tourists and locals. But its so big, it did not feel busy. Parking is available on the adjacent streets.
  • This right here it was my first place I'm going Abalone diving I really really love this but I can't wait to go back here very very beautiful scenery here unbelievable breathtaking
  • Wow! It makes you just want to stand their and clap your hands! This particular area had multiple views and was easy to get to. Lots of free parking. It was also easy to walk between the different viewing areas. It's all flat. Other areas required climbing or rough paths and a bit of a walk to get to.
  • Easy access, great strolling. Ocean - sky - cliffs. If you have the time, great place to bring a sandwich and spend the afternoon. A real treat.
