Patrick's Point State Park


Patrick's Point State Park is located approximately 25 miles north of Eureka, California. Patrick's Point State Park is located in the famed California redwood country. The park features a very dense forest of a variety of trees including hemlock, pine, spruce, fir, and red alder. Imbedded between the dense forests are lush meadows full of a litany of wildflowers.

The park is a mixture of shoreline beaches as well as soaring cliffs that overlook the Pacific Ocean. The beaches offer visitors to the park opportunities to explore tide pools, search for shells and agates, and watch for sea lions, whales, and California sunsets.

Patrick's Point State park has several miles of hiking trails and a camp ground. The main trail is the Rim Trail which weaves throughout the park. There is also a Yurok village that has traditional family houses, sweat houses, and a dance hall. The village is used to teach traditional Yurok culture to local youth.

In 1997 a Native American garden was established with plants used by the local Yuroks. The plants are used for medicinal purposes as well as decorating traditional baskets and ceremonial purposes. The Native American garden is located east of the Yurok Village.
