Kiddie Koncierge: Resources - Mendocino
Mendocino is 3 hours give or take from the Bay Area. That is a lot
closer than you think. Make a weekend of it and drop through
Graton for polenta at Willowwood, visit the Skunk Train from Willits
to Fort Bragg (and vice versa), watch whales in Mendocino, visit a
landmark from California's rich history, and much more.
A Russian Fort? Yes, it is true. Russian traders settled this part
of the Mendocino coast between 1812 and 1841. If you drive past
Gualala on the way up, you will see some onion domes on your
right. Those are part of a hotel, St. Orres, not the fort which is on
the other side of the highway. The Fort itself is well-preserved with
lots of historical information and displays as well as some
outstanding views of the coast from the grounds. For information,
Kruse Rhododendron State
Just outside of Fort Ross and on the uphill side of highway one is
a terrific short (2.5 miles) hike through a lush glade
Rhododendrons that between mid-April and early June erupts in
color. Heavy rains are a mixed blessing: they can generate great
blooms but they can also beat them down. Visit this page for
information and trail head location.
If your child likes horses, is 6 years and older, and weighs less
than 250 pounds, this is for you. For $60 you can ride for two
hours along the beach or among the redwoods (for $50). The
horses are great and matched to your riding ability. It can get
breezy and cool, so dress accordingly, but we have been there
twice and just love this outfit. They accept credit cards and, of
course, cash. For details and reservations, visit
