Near some of California's most impressive coastal scenery, including sheer cliffs, tide pools, beaches covered in semi-precious pebbles, and old sea stacks that rise in the surf like skyscrapers.
Patrick's Point is a 640 acre park in the heart of the California coast's redwood country. The park's dense forests of spruce, hemlock, pine, fir and red alder stretch over an ocean headland with lovely wildflower-festooned meadows and a dramatic shoreline ranging from broad sandy beaches to sheer cliffs that rise high above the Pacific Ocean offer great opportunities to explore tide pools, search for agates and driftwood, watch whales and sea lions and brilliant sunset.
