Take a Stroll on the Boardwalk
Talk about multiple habitats in one park! The main attraction for me is the seals. I love exploring the naturalness of a place. I enjoy watching the squirrels and birds.
The landscapes vary too! Beach to Dune to Forest. Wetland to Bluff to Headland.
The MacKerricher State Park enterance is in Cleone, California (near Fort Bragg, CA). Fort Bragg is worth a stop to explore. There is the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens, North Coast Brewing Company, Noyo Harbor (great place to pick up some fresh fish and seafood, like crab), Glass Beach, and Russian Gulch State Park. Russian Gulch State Park offers great hiking and scenic views of the ocean.
