Caspar Headland State Natural Reserve is located on the Pacific Coast in Mendocino County approximately 4 miles north of the town of Mendocino. The reserve is shared by a residential community in Caspar South, which lies on a bluff overlooking the ocean. Bordering the reserve to the north is Caspar Beach and RV Campground, and further north the town of Caspar. State Natural Reserves have outstanding or unusual natural or scenic values. This Reserve contains a small strip of rugged coastline featured sculpted rocks, wildflowers and surf.
This is a nice quiet trail down by the sea shore. If you are able to appreciate a quiet walk in the woods just for the beauty of the forest this is a nice trail. It is nothing spectacular just secluded and quiet. The trail is up and down some but is really quite gentle. The initial climb is no more than 100 feet and then undulates for the entire length.
