In 2002, Mendocino Land Trust completed the purchase and transfer of 7,334 acres around Big River to State Parks. This includes a wonderful haul road that travels about 10 miles east to connect Big River Beach with Mendocino Woodlands State Park.

Much of this haul road is multi-use and available to equestrians, bikers, hikers, runners, and people in wheelchairs. Along its length, there are lovely views of Big River estuary, which hosts birds, seals, otters, and other wildlife. It is a wonderful trail where you can walk side-by-side with friends and family, enjoying the quiet beauty of the Mendocino Coast.

Dogs on leash are welcome to explore this area.

Help us keep this trail beautiful and dog-friendly:
• Always follow the posted rules as they may have changed
• If in off-leash area, keep your dog under voice command
• Respect and protect wildlife and habitats
• Pack in and pack out, leaving only paw prints
