In Mendocino County you'll find some of the greatest unspoiled coastal landscapes in between the redwood forests and the wine groves.
Russian Gulch State Park begins in the coastal mountains and cuts its way through a canyon of redwoods and out to sea, past a picturesque route one highway bridge, and a number of sea caves.
Pick out a route from a choice of trails within the gulch, and you can choose a very short hike or one of up to 6 miles, many of which lead to a charming little waterfall, which is often flowing even in late summer. After your hike, be sure to check out the coastal headlands and the blow-hole overlook.
A day use fee is required at the State Park, which is manned during in-season months. The trailhead is located at the far end of the campsite.
