Point Cabrillo Light Station State Historic Park is a living link to California’s history, featuring a beautifully rehabilitated 1909 lighthouse and 11 other structures, including three lightkeepers’ homes. In a nearby cove rest the remains of the Frolic, the most important Gold Rush-era shipwreck in California. Located four miles north of Mendocino, the park’s 296.5 acres of open space include an impressive variety of wildlife and hiking trails. Hours: Sunrise - Sunset

The trail is lovely. Paved until you reach the light house. The aquarium / museum is very small but informative and fun. The bulge along the cliff side is lovely but very windy, my water bottle blew out of my hand (fortunately we recovered it).
The cliff side trails are fun.
The return trail is cut through heavy grasses and runs parallel to the paved road. A fun path.
If you enjoy wind you will enjoy this!

Super cute and educational! The locals have done a wonderful job at restoring the lighthouse and surrounding buildings.

Found a small waterfall by the beach.
