In what might be California’s most overlooked region, lonely beaches stretch to the horizon and redwoods tower over cars along Highway 101, which takes travelers north from the Bay Area to the border with Oregon. The North Coast region couldn’t be more different from sunny Southern California, with its developed shores and surf-town vibe; instead, the focus here is on nature, with the stretch known as the Lost Coast standing as one of California’s last true coastal wildernesses. The North Coast is famous for its redwoods, including three trees that you can drive straight through! While you're here, make sure you visit the Redwoods State and National Parks for a walk through nature, where these old, proud trees will leave you in awe. Located in the North Coast is Mendocino County, which has some fantastic wineries, some great places to eat, and a museum where you can learn all about the area's history. Much like the rest of California, North Coast has some great beaches, great food, and great wineries. It's an unmissable area if you're visiting California. Along with its natural beauty, the region beckons with fresh seafood, an inviting history and beautiful vistas that are easy to reach along the Pacific Coast Highway. Though small towns dot the region, traveling here (particularly in the off-season) can seem like you’re in an entirely different, almost unpopulated California. Plan your trip with a rental RV from Mighway, and let the journey unfold.

The Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center was designed to reflect the modest, low key, and comfortable personality and style of the internationally-famous cartoonist. Until his death in 2000, Charles “Sparky” Schulz himself was involved with each design stage. After his passing, his widow, Jean, along with close friends, family members, and museum and design professionals kept his vision in mind to create this beautiful and meaningful space as a tribute to an extraordinary man.
From Crescent City, California, take Howland Hill Road into the back entrance of Jedediah Smith State Park. The road will turn from pavement to dirt, and you'll be thrown into the thick of one of the most majestic stands of redwoods that still exist. Hundreds of old growth massives surround you, hiking is ample, but even a simple drive through this mist-laden forest will be enough to leave you wondering where the giants are who equal such grand foliage.
At Benziger, we’re about three things: family, great wine and healthy vineyards. For more than thirty years we’ve searched Sonoma County for the most distinctive and expressive vineyard sites.

Bodega Head is the prominent rocky point that protects Bodega Harbor from the west. This large point has a rugged coastline that is exposed to strong waves and cool damp weather. There is a small sandy beach below the parking lot and picnic area that is worth visiting. A steep path north of the picnic area leads to the beach where you can feel the raw energy of the ocean. The real draw to Bodega Head is the hiking trail network that loops around the headlands. Dress appropriately for this windy spot and make time to hike the official loop trail. It’s a wide path that is mostly accessible. There are many small side trails that take you to vantage points at cliff edges overlooking Bodega Harbor, Bodega Bay, and the Pacific Ocean. Bodega Head is a popular gray whale watching location during the January-May migration season. The Headlands are part of Sonoma Coast State Park. If you are looking for a safer beach to wade in, then consider Campbell Cove on Bodega Harbor on your way back down the Westshore Road.
Most people know Redwood as home to the tallest trees on Earth. But the parks also protect vast prairies, oak woodlands, wild riverways, and nearly 40 miles of pristine coastline, all supporting a rich mosaic of wildlife diversity and cultural traditions. Together, the National Park Service and California State Parks manage these lands for the inspiration, enjoyment, and education of all people. The Columbia Lily, also known as Tiger Lily, colors the road sides and forest edges with brilliant yellow-orange blossoms from May through August. The stem is two to three feet tall and has several whorls of long, narrow leaves. Walking through a redwood grove on a fog-shrouded morning can be an unforgettable experience. Sounds are reduced to the musical gurgle of water trickling amongst ferns and mossy rocks. Light ebbs with the somber mist and shafts of sun hang like cobwebs. Stillness and peace weave their spells upon the respectful traveler. More than 200 miles of trails weave through a variety of environments, including prairies, old-growth redwood forests, and beaches. In this section, we list all the hikes RNSP has to offer on three web pages. Be sure to pick up a map at the visitor center and chat with the rangers. Elevations at RNSP range from sea level to just over 3,000 feet (1,000 m). Consistently mild temperatures make year-round exploration a possibility. Be aware that trails in the redwoods are often wet and slippery, so bring raingear and good boots for your hike. In winter, the Redwood Creek and Trestle Trails may be difficult or impossible to use. Temporary bridges open these trails in summer but are removed for the rainy season. Fern Canyon bridges are removed as well. You can hike the ¼-mile canyon but it will be a chilly experience; bring water shoes. Access to Stout Grove from Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park campground exists only in the summer via seasonal bridges. Go explore! Numerous historic structures have been documented within RNSP. These structures range from the Old Redwood Highway (running north and south of the Klamath River), to structures such as ranching features and barns. Some structures are part of the larger cultural landscape. Segments of the Old Redwood Highway and Radar Station B-71, a World War II radar station disguised as a barn, are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Redwood National Park: The Prairie Creek Fish Hatchery, located off Highway 101 near Orick, was one of the first small local hatcheries developed to improve sport and commercial fishing in the area. The hatchery, constructed in 1936, is one of only three remaining hatcheries that were built in California from 1871 to 1946. The hatchery is on the National Register of Historic Places. Six sites in the Bald Hills near Redwood Creek are associated with late 19th century cattle and sheep ranching. The Lyons' Ranches Rural Historic District includes eight structures dating to the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Each structure has been stabilized, and some of the structures are eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. East of Crescent City in the Little Bald Hills is Murphy’s Ranch and outlying barn site, which dates circa 1884 to the 1920s. The ranch was established along the historic Kelsey Trail, a pack route linking Crescent City with the Salmon and Trinity gold mines. A remnant of the Trinidad Trail joins the Tall Trees Grove Trail. The trail connected coastal supply centers with early gold mining sites, and was later adopted by homesteaders in the Bald Hills. Several sites associated with the Union Gold Bluffs Placer Mine, which was in operation from 1872 to 1901, have been identified in the Gold Bluffs Beach area. Radar Station B-71, which sits atop an ocean bluff south of Klamath, is a rare example of a World War II early warning radar station. The site consists of two structures and other military features, including radar antennas and two machine gun emplacements. Lastly, scenes from the Star Wars movie series were filmed within the park.Visit Redwood National Park
Located along the Eel River in northern California, Humboldt Redwoods State Park contains some of the world's most majestic ancient redwood groves. The park encompasses over 53,000 acres, including 17,000 acres of old-growth coast redwoods. In 1921 Save the Redwoods League dedicated the first Memorial Grove, Colonel Raynal C. Bolling Memorial Grove, in what is now known as Humboldt Redwoods State Park. Today the park contains a diverse coast redwood ecosystem, which includes Rockefeller Forest, the largest remaining old-growth forest in the world, and the entire Bull Creek watershed. With more than 250 camp sites, 100 miles of hiking, biking, and riding trails, and the scenic 32-mile Avenue of the Giants, Humboldt Redwoods State Park offers something for everyone. Whether you have just a single day to visit or a week long vacation to explore, a journey into the redwood forest is sure to be an awe-inspiring experience. The park is open year 'round and recreational activities are available throughout the four seasons.Visit Humboldt Redwoods State Park
