What a beautiful day at Hearn Gulch!

Hearn Gulch is found just north of Iversen Road at mile marker 10.0 in Mendocino County. It is a fairly new public access point. Rick and I recently hiked there, along with our golden retriever, Huckleberry. The sky was amazing with beautiful clouds.

 This is the view to the west. Bishop Pine trees are clinging to the bluff face.

And this is the view to the south.

If you walk to the north you will find this pocket beach. You can see some kelp has already washed ashore. There is a trail to the beach. While it is steep there is a rope to help you on your way down and back up.

There wasn't much wave action the day we were there. There is a sea tunnel on the left. In the days to come, with the ocean beginning to be more active, this would be a great place to visit.

The Redwood Coast Land Conservancy works to provide public access to scenic spots like Hearn Gulch. And, wow, are they doing a great job! To learn more about RCLC and other access spots on the Mendonoma Coast, here is the link to their website: http://www.rc-lc.org/
