Hearn Gulch Trail
Highway One Mile Marker (south end): 10
Trail Length: 0.5 miles
The Hearn Gulch Trail, located in the southern Mendocino Coast’s “banana belt,” offers lovely spring wildflowers and spectacular views to the north and south. A short hike offers access to a small pocket beach at Hearn Gulch, which is a fairly easy walk with a short but steep set of rough stairs leading down to the beach. This blufftop overlook was saved from development in 1999 by the Friends of Schooner Gulch, and is now stewarded for conservation and public access by the Redwood Coast Land Conservancy (RCLC).
