Point Cabrillo Light Station

Point Cabrillo Light Station

The Point Cabrillo Preserve, a California State Historic Park, includes the picturesque lighthouse built in 1909 on a spectacular headland jutting into the Pacific.

Dogs are welcome on preserve trails and in the lighthouse, which is a half-mile walk from the parking lot and visitors center. This is a great location for winter whale spotting. 

For visitors up for an overnight adventure, the head light-keeper's house and surrounding cottages are available as vacation rentals, although just one unit, the West Cottage, is dog-friendly. It can be booked through Mendocino Coast Reservations, VRBO and other agencies. 

Dogs welcome on leash.
