“Where Air is Born”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Nature as it's best. The Cove is not to be missed, walk into the form of the Pacific. Cool...very!
Always be aware of the power of the Pacific Ocean.

“Great hiking and cliffside picnicing in Mendocino”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Amazingly beautiful park!!! Fabulous, easily accessible hike through the beautiful fern forest and redwoods to a nice waterfall. Even better, you can choose multiple paths to the waterfall allowing you to do anywhere from a 3-7 mile roundtrip hike. Make sure to not miss the beautiful cliffside lunch area and wildflower walk along the cliffs. Breathtakingly beautiful and a highlight of our trip to the Mendocino area!
