The Mendocino Woodlands State Park is a year-round group camping retreat facility and environmental center nestled in the heart of the Redwood Forest, just northeast of the town of Mendocino. A 720-acre park, the Woodlands offers three private group cabin camping areas, each with a large, well equipped kitchen, dining hall, cabins, showers and bathrooms. The camping areas can accommodate groups of 30 to 200. The peaceful, rustic setting of this park creates a unique learning environment for personal growth, retreats, training seminars, dance, music, church, youth and nature study groups. Hiking trails, a large beaver pond, river otters, deer, fox, and other natural amenities complete the "magic" of the Mendocino Woodlands.

A beautiful trail that steadily descends through 2nd-growth forest to a flat-bottom canyon (from which trails continue, if you feel like extending your hike). Quietness and solitude, but watch out for mountain bikers (and it's a very good biking trail to descend). Only drawback is that during the continuous steady descent, you are well aware that you'll be making a continuous, steady ascent for the return portion of your hike.
