Swim at Standish-Hickey State Recreation Area

Rate this Adventure San Francisco South Fork Eel River

Added by The Outbound Collective

Laze in the cool calm section of the Eel River--cliff jumping also an option!

Driving along Redwood Highway you will see a parking area at the South Eel River Fork. Park here and then walk the very short distance to the section of river that is calm, cool, and inviting you to jump in. Pack a picnic and a beach umbrella and enjoy the natural beauty around you.

Hike Along Mendocino Cliffs Trail

San Francisco / Mendocino Bay

The town of Mendocino is as charming and quaint as one can find. It is no wonder why it was pegged as the perfect location spot to film the series Murder She Wrote.

Hike to McClures Beach

San Francisco / McClures Beach Parking

This beach is really easy to get to. Just follow Pierce Point Road until you see the sign to the beach. It's an easy hike down from the parking lot.
