Weekend Highlights :
WONDERFUL TIME AT THE BEACH
Fort Bragg is famous for its Glass beach. We will be able to enjoy its beauty and even go for a beachcombing and tide pooling afternoon! If not the Glass beach, then you should be aware of the fact that Pomo Bluffs on Todd's point are breathtaking! Make sure you have enough space in your camera/smart phone because you will want to take lots of pictures and videos of these mesmerizing views!!
||COASTAL & FOREST TRAIL HIKES
We will be taking a couple short to moderate hikes. We will be exploring the Mendocino Coast and it's hidden beaches and coastal trails. Jackson State Forest is not too far too, so we can explore the forest as well where we are likely to encounter gorgeous waterfalls, wild mushrooms, and all kinds of creatures.
