Patrick’s Point State Park is located in the heart of Redwood Country. If you love to experience spectacular panoramas, rocky cliffs, great hiking trails and sandy beaches, you won’t want to pass up this wonderful opportunity.
Six miles of scenic hiking trails thread through the park where acres of dense forest stretch over an ocean headland. Stroll under a canopy of spruce, hemlock, pine, fir and red alder trees. Wildflower meadows offer spectacular vistas. The Rim Trail, which follows an old Indian path over the park’s rocky promontories, provides views of the coast and serves as a great lookout for whale-watching.
Popular activities here include strolling along the broad beaches and exploring tide pools, casting a fishing line, searching for driftwood, spotting whales and sea lions, and gazing at magnificent sunsets. Short, steep hikes will take you to the tops of Ceremonial Rock and Lookout Rock, while coastal hikes will take you to Wedding Rock and Patrick’s Point, offering breathtaking ocean vistas. History buffs will enjoy the re-created Yurok Village with its traditional Native American family houses, sweat lodge, changing houses, redwood canoe and dance house. There is also a native plant garden with species of local flora including seasonal flowers and berries to explore.
