The Mendocino Bay Viewpoint trail is a short trail that offers fantastic views of the town of Mendocino to the north.
This is a great place for picnics, “plein-air” painting, sunset viewing, and getting married.
There’s a bench at the northern part of the public area, dedicated to Grail Dawson and Betty Barber, longtime supporters of the Mendocino Land Trust, the organization that manages the site. This is the first public access area in California that was opened by a nonprofit in a public access easement on private property- pretty cool!
Dogs on leash are welcome to explore this area.
