The mild temperatures are setting in and we’re a few short weeks away from getting outside and really exploring the Northern California coastline. The Mendocino Coast and Fort Bragg, CA offer some great activities for weekend visits and getaways. No matter what your interests, the area has something to do and offer for everyone. Cleone Gardens Inn is a short stay away from Fort Bragg and secluded enough to get away and have a relaxing stay, but close enough to enjoy all the activities, shopping and dining of the area. We aim to offer a perfect accommodation for your weekend trip. Here’s a look at some of the things to do in Fort Bragg for those a looking for a little more adventure and exploration.
Horseback- You can ride a horse right on the beach! Lari Shea’s Ricochet Ridge Ranch has unbelievable beach and redwood forest riding vacations on Northern California’s magnificent Mendocino Coast. They offer weeklong riding vacations as well as weekend riding holidays and even daily trail rides along Ten Mile Beach, across cattle ranches and through majestic Redwood forests.
Mountain Bike and Hiking – Close by is the Jackson State Forest. With plenty of trails to explore, Fort Bragg cyclery can recommend the best options to enjoy the forests and see some amazing scenery. Even if you don’t want to bike, you can explore all the forests in the area by foot, like the Hans Jenny Pygmy Forest in Jug Handle State Reserve.
Kayaking- Grab a kayak and head out into the ocean. Jeff and Cate, from Liquid Fusion Kayaking, guide you on an unforgettable adventure through the Northern California Ocean. On their website, they describe the adventure. “Enjoy a mystical journey of the Mendocino Coast in a kayak. Explore dramatic geological features; be intrigued by marine wildlife, and inspired by rugged beauty. Explore the placid Noyo River estuary or the Pacific ocean with its sea caves, arches, sea stacks, and secluded coves.”
After a rugged day of adventure, come back and relax at the Cleone Gardens Inn. We’ll provide with the perfect sedation to come down after a long day.
