WOW!!! There really is a ton of stuff to do on the Mendocino Coast. Especially if you like the outdoors. Here are a few of our suggestions.
Walking - Fort Bragg has lots of coastal paths for walking. Noyo Headlands Park, Glass Beach, Pomo Bluffs, and Mackerricher are several with views of areas that we may be paddling.
Hiking - lots of options. Russian Gulch State Park is one of our local favorites.
Giant Redwoods - Montgomery Woods is a bit off the beaten path but has a beautiful stand of old growth redwoods including some of the largest trees in the world.
Whale Watching - December-April is the annual Gray Whale migration. See these gentle giants cruise along the coast from shore or from boat. We see them from our kayaks but also check with Captain Tim at All Aboard Adventures for special tours.
Birding - of course we recommend a kayak tour with us but also check with our friends in the Mendocino Coast Audubon Society
Horse Back Riding - ride on the beach or in the redwoods with our friends at Ricochet Ridge Ranch
Fishing - Salmon, rockfish, albacore, and dungeness crabs are the popular fisheries of the Mendocino Coast. For fishing regulations check out CADFW. For charter boats, check with our Captain Tuna or All Aboard Adventures.
Diving - Check with our friends at Subsurface Progression for all of your diving needs.
Skunk Train - Historic railroad that journeys through the redwoods
Glass Fire - check out their gallery and watch Buster and Trish blow glass in their studio.
Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens - one of our favorite places to go for a stroll or for a picnic.
CV Starr Community Center - Swimming pools, fitness center, skate park, and dog park
Disc Golf - 9 hole course at College of the Redwoods in Fort Bragg and 19 hole course at Anderson Valley Brewery Company
Noyo Harbor Boat Tours - Cruise the Noyo Harbor with Captain Dan.
