We drove around the area, and got out and walked to the edge of the headlands in a couple of places where there was parking, but really didn't find it particularly interesting. The Oregon coast is so much more vigorous and beautiful that we didn't think this was all it was cracked up to be.

Access to the walking path at Mendocino Headlands State Park from the village of Mendocino could not be simpler, the walking could not be much easier (the path is a bit of a dusty rut in dry weather), and the views of ocean waves breaking on rocky points could not be more engaging. Walk as long as you like and take in the sights!

i walk here often. you can spot whales when they migrate. sometimes the waves are huge, at other times the ocean is as calm as can be. always a great walk.

Great views of the coastline at west end of the town of Mendocino. A few trails to follow out to the points and down to the water. Not much else there.

View of Mendocino is exceptional, blow hole a real treat, views forever! Be careful on the path, since there is increasing erosion of coastline. Listen to the sounds; a photographer nearby called it a "soundscape!"
