Great hiking !!!! Bring a picnic and enjoy your day. The vista are spectacular - along with bird watching.
There is nothing like the Mendocino Coast to rejuvenate your spirit and take in all of the natural beauty of the ocean. The views are inspiring and the Mendocino Village is filled with many beautiful art galleries with talented artists to enjoy.
We got into town right before the sun went down. Easy to find parking and walked right out onto the rocks. The spray of the large waver below flew in the air as the sun slowly dipped into the horizon. Don't miss this!!
Relax by the ocean and watch the whales swim by! Spectacular day walking along easy, flat trails. We drove to one of the parking lots, walked along the coast towards town and had a great lunch. Walking back to the car, we relaxed on a bench along the trail and watched whales and dolphins spout and swim off the coast.... More
I highly recommend this walk for everyone. The trail is level and well marked with some interesting history items from Mendocino's whaling past. Over about a 30 minute period, we saw more than 40 whale spouts and a few backs and flukes. I've never seen so many spouts in one place at one time. I'd do this walk again in... More
Easy to walk to from town and the surf is magnificent. Any time of the day the light is spectacular. Even fog is interesting.
The Headland State Park is the backyard to historic Mendocino Village. Ideal for whale watching and observing the powerful waves that crash over the rocks and against the bluffs. Awesome!
Lovely trails to explore and watch the surf, the coast, the lighthouse! This time of year, you can park your car and sit for hours watching the migrating whales. Incredible spot!
