Pet Friendly Mendocino Headlands State Park
Mendocino Headlands State Park Mendocino Headlands State Park is one of the most pet-friendly parks in the area. Unlike most state parks in California, Fido can join you on most of the dirt trails that surround the town of Mendocino. Many of the casual trails will lead you to stunning views of swooping cliffs. There's even a short dog-friendly path to Portuguese Beach, which allows pooches on a leash onto the sand. If you continue along from the beach, you'll find a blow hole and lots more beautiful coastal scenery. Mendocino Headlands is open during the day. See Details
