Calling the situation “outrageous” and “a flagrant violation of the law,” the California Coastal Commission voted unanimously to issue a notice of violation and a cease-and-desist order to an Ontario Ridge property owner who installed fences, gates and signs that blocked access to a popular hiking trail.
Join David LaFollette for this special National Trails Day Hike along the Mendocino Hike. This gem of a hike begins at Little River Beach in Van Damme State Park and travels north along the California Coastal Trail. This trail passes through grasslands, where you might spot black-tailed deer, to a bluff top with access to a sandy beach and rocky benches usually populated with harbor seals and the noisy American black Oystercatcher. David will take you through a Bishop Pine forest to his favorite spot on the CCT, overlooking the rugged coast and a grand view, from which he has seen many gray, humpacked, and blue whales, harbor seals, sea lions, and many more birds and mammals! This hike is great for the first time hiker or experienced CCT hiker!
Pack water, layers and a lunch with snacks. Be sure to wear sturdy hiking shoes.
Meet at 10:00 am at Little River Beach
David will contact you prior to the hike with his information.
