This 0.7-mile long trail leads to Belinda Point, as well as a stairway down to a rocky pocket beach.
The trail is within two public access easements on private property, which were required by the California Coastal Commission in the 1990s, because of likelihood of “prescriptive rights” gained here through decades of public use. The point was named “Belinda Point” because in 1948, the film “Johnny Belinda” was filmed here.
This trail is perfect for families with small children. There is a boardwalk through a seasonally wet part of the trail, which then travels through a eucalyptus forest and out to the bluff edge. The stairway down to the pocket cove is sturdy and easy to find. This hiking trail is managed by the Mendocino Land Trust.
Dogs on leash are welcome to explore this area.
