“Beautiful”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

It was absolutely beautiful, but not really a "park." It is basically a walk around the peninsula of Mendicino.

“Good place for photos and scenery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

We had planned our visit for Mendocino due to the Glass beach located near the Headlands state park. Headlands state park has a nice view. Basically mountains have cracked into due to pressure of waves over the years and literally you can see the tunnel kind of cave formation... As a family you can be happy with going around the edge take pictures..unless you are an adventure kind of and want to discover more :-)

The views are absolutely amazing and this became one of my favorite places in the Mendocino area. Definitely visit the headlands if you are in the area!

“Mendocino Headland walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Walk along the headlands and enjoy the Pacific and the off shore islands. You are away from civilization, but across the street is the Mendocino Hotel--a relic from the 1880's, but up to date and charming--good place to eat and stay.

“Peaceful and Intriguing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Just walk through the grass, walk out the the farthest point, and watch the waves tirelessly crash over the rugged rocks, venture down a steep path to the water, scramble around the rocks and caves, and marvel at the display of wildflowers all along the way.
