Located 25 miles north of Eureka California, Patrick's Point is a park located in the heart of California's coast 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. A dramatic shoreline ranging from broad sandy beaches to sheer cliffs that rise high above the Pacific Ocean offers great opportunities to explore tide pools, search for agates and driftwood, watch whales, sea lions and brilliant sunsets. The park offers several miles of hiking trails, a recreated Yurok Village, a native plant garden, visitor center, three family campgrounds, 2 group camps, a camp for hikers and bicyclists, and 2 group picnic areas. Weather is typically 40-65 degrees during the summer and 35-55 degrees during winter. Rainfall averages about sixty inches a year, and most of it falls between October and April.

One of the most scenic trails in Humbolt county. Check the sunset if you get a chance.

Again...one and done. The park in general has some beautiful views of the ocean and some good walks for families or people who are less mobile. Looks like a good place to camp too. Not a place at all to really "hike".

No longer exists.... When I asked the Ranger about the trail she said most of the trees blew down a couple of years ago.

Short and only once... Won't be back. Good place to camp with kids though.

Big surprise today... Trail was filled with a film crew doing a Disney movie. They were filming on Ceremonial Rock. Close to a hundred crew members everywhere on this trail. I turned down an invitation to lunch with the crew from a hospitable member since I had another hike to do in Prairie Creek...

Nice views of the south side... The ocean was angry today.

Did every trail in the park today.... One and done!

Got to see everything the park had to offer on this one. It was unexpectedly crowded on a winter day. They are filming a Disney movie in the park. The center was really crowded with the crew.

Nice little walk with views. Looks like a decent place to camp but I'll never hike here again. It would be good with kids.
