“Outdoors & Recreation in Mendocino, CA”
Mendocino Headlands State Park with its unique blend of gentle trails, rugged coastline, secluded beaches and timeless history surrounds the picturesque Village of Mendocino on three sides. Miles of trails wind along the cliffs, giving the casual explorer spectacular views of sea arches and hidden grottos. In any season, a visit to the Mendocino Headlands will provide a memorable experience. You might come to see the spring wildflowers, enjoy a crisp and clear fall day, escape to a cool summer climate or witness the winter migration of grey whale. The park provides Mendocino with a buffer area that preserves the town's historical presence. In return, the town provides a view of a unique blend of natural, ecological, cultural and social diversity. Activities range from hiking and surfing to fishing. Photographers and painters frequently visit various parts of Mendocino Headlands enjoying and capturing the scenic wonders. There are no camping facilities; visitors are day users only.
Beautiful. The views. The sea lions. The grey coastal squirrels. Nice little town. But wait to get gas. Must stop.
As we were driving Highway 1 towards the North Coast of California, we've decided to stop by at the Mendocino Town for a lunch. Oh my God what a nice little town with friendly people, what a great food and what great views.
Locals there informed us that there is a lot going on at their Town, with many events taking place throughout the year and many artists visiting their little Town. Well if i was a painter i would definitely visit Mendocino, not so much for the Town though, but rather for the Mendocino Headlands State Park. After the lunch and resting a bit, we drove towards the Park where we were pleasantly surprised to find out that there were miles of trails, ideal for mountain biking which provided us generously with some really spectacular views of the Ocean! They informed us that during winter you can witness from the Park's cliffs the winter migration of grey whale, a spectacle worth the visit if you are a nature lover!
