MacKerricher State Park is huge — stretching along sandy beaches and rocky shorelines from near Downtown Fort Bragg to more than five miles north.

You can ride horses on the beach or ride your bike on the Old Haul Road that once carried logging trucks from the forest to the mill (now closed). You’ll find walking trails, a lake, wildlife viewing platforms (Laguna Point) and a visitor center.

We like the visitor center as a great place to get oriented: there’s a gray whale skeleton out front that teaches about the annual whale migration from Alaska to Mexico. Inside is a natural history museum of local animals. There is also a gift shop and a ranger or friendly park aide willing to share their knowledge of the park and the adventures awaiting you. We’ll help you get there.
