Whether it is walking along the bluffs or meandering through the cypress forests, hikers have access to spectacular scenery and wildlife viewing opportunities on the Point Arena-Stornetta Lands. Whales migrate off the coast November through May. Resident and migratory birds can be spotted throughout the year. Spring wildlfowers bloom among the grasses.
Self-guided hikes are an excellent way to explore these lands. Beginning in the summer of 2017, the Friends group will be offering monthly docent led hikes with local naturalists. Throughout the year we also offer special events on the lands. Stay in touch on our Facebook page or join our email list.
The lands can be reached via one of three access points:
- Behind Point Arena City Hall
- Midway on Lighthouse Road
- South of entrance to Point Arena Lighthouse
