Mendocino County

Whether it's coast, country or cuisine you want, Mendocino County delivers the goods. This beautiful part of northern California is a million miles away from the busy SoCal scene - in spirit, if not in distance. Here there's the chance to walk on wild Pacific bluffs, watching for whales while the spray flies. But there's also rolling valleys blanketed with farms and wineries to explore, as well as artsy towns, meandering rivers and thick redwood forests.

The coastline here is full of surprises. If it's sandy beaches with shallow lagoons you're after, then they're not hard to find. But elsewhere things get more dramatic. Other stretches have craggy cliffs where the shore is strewn with driftwood and the waves crash deafeningly into sinkholes. Then there's Glass Beach, which glitters with thousands of pieces of sea-eroded glass. And Bowling Ball Beach, where hundreds of strangely round rocks are exposed at low tide.

Getting out and about is a must on Mendocino County holidays, and there are dozens of ways to do so. Hiking trails snake all along the coast, through the redwood forests and along the river valleys, making for perfect walking and wildlife-spotting territory. There's also great sea and river kayaking, where you'll share the water with otters and seals, plus rafting on the Big and Noyo rivers, and whale-spotting trips. And if you're a rod and reel fan, there's fantastic fishing for largemouth bass on Lake Mendocino.

Solitude isn't hard to find in Mendocino County, but if you want more company, head to the bookstores, antiques shops, and boutiques of rustic Fort Bragg - or to the galleries and restaurants of arty Mendocino, with its New England feel. One thing's for certain: wherever you find yourself on Mendocino County holidays, you're sure of a good time.

The Skunk Train

Ride 40 miles of railroad through magnificent redwood forests, past scenic mountain meadows, along deep river valleys and over 30 trestle bridges deep into the back country. The steam-powered Skunk Train follows the traditional route used to carry lumber from the woods to the Mendocino sawmills, and the views from its open carriages are sublime.

Point Arena-Stornetta

Just north of Point Arena, with its iconic lighthouse marking the most westerly point in the Lower 48, the Point Arena-Stornetta Public Lands is the USA's newest National Monument. Designated in 2014, it's a 12-mile stretch of beautifully rugged Pacific coastline, with bluffs, beaches, dunes and off-shore islands - perfect for hiking, picnics and wildlife-spotting.

Drink and Be Merry

There are over 100 wineries in Mendocino County, mostly clustered in Anderson Valley. Wind your way along scenic byways, stopping to sample superb Pinot Noirs, sparkling wines and Alsace varietals - or if beer is more your thing, head to the Anderson Valley Brewing Company instead.

A Walk in the Woods

A stroll amongst giant coastal redwood trees is a must on Mendocino County holidays. These are the tallest trees on the planet, towering up to 350ft, and the biggest of them all was at Montgomery Woods - until its top was blown off by lightning! For an experience at the other end of the scale visit the Pygmy Forest in Van Damme State Park, where the trees and shrubs are bizarrely stunted.

Mendocino

This fabulous seaside gem with its wooden buildings, cluster of galleries and superb botanical gardens complete with ocean views is not to be missed. Browse boutique shops or grab a tasty bite to eat before heading to the Mendocino Headlands State Park for a spectacular stroll past rocky sea arches, dramatic sink holes and hidden grottoes.
