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.

This is an extremely easy, leisurely hike with beautiful views of the coast. You have to pay the $8 entrance fee for the state park (which is good for the entire day to any of the surrounding state parks) and well worth the views and various trails you can take within the park

Loved this trail. Easy, and short but beautiful the whole way. Only about 15 minutes to the shore.

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

Absolutely love this area

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