MacKerricher State Park offers a variety of habitats: beach, bluff, headland, dune, forest and wetland. Tidepools are along the shore. Seals may be seen on the rocks off the park’s coastline.

More than 90 species of birds visit or live near Cleone Lake, a formal tidal lagoon. During winter and spring, the nearby headland provides a good lookout for whale watching. The park is popular with hikers, joggers, equestrians and bicyclists. Fishing is also popular at Cleone lake. The park has a wheelchair accessible nature trail. (Some text courtesy of Calif. State Parks)

The park spans 10 miles of coastline, starting at Glass Beach in Fort Bragg, and continuing north up the coast to Ten Mile River. The old paved Haul Road (closed to motor vehicles) lets you walk along the coast for miles, and there are many paths along the bluffs. Near Cleone Lake, there is a long boardwalk that takes you out to a platform overlooking the rocks where harbor seals raise their pups in April and May.
