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.
yes it is an easy trail suitable for small children ( no wheelchair access)the viewpoint section at the end might not be quite such a good place for kids who will want to scramble up onto the low rock wall exposing them to a sheer hundred foot drop to to rocks and sea below. if you take your children keep avery close eye on them
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...
