McKinleyville is a scenic, bluff-located California community, overlooking the Pacific Ocean with a beautiful green backdrop of mountains. The town has a slow-paced, chilled atmosphere and a modern, vibrant community. Surrounded by natural beauty, it's a wonderful place to take a break in Northern California.
Explore the scenic Hammond Trail by foot or bike, the trail runs alongside the coast from one end of the town to the other. Head to the beach for a fun day surfing, kayaking, fishing, swimming or wandering the sand and relaxing by the shore.
Little River State Beach is perfect for families, and bordered by Clam Beach County Park, with a long sandy stretch of beach that goes on for miles and offers sweeping views.
The town's proximity to State Parks and forests is good news for outdoor types, with camping, hiking and excellent river fishing, plus horse trails and white water rafting. Bird watchers can look for rare species, and animal lovers might spot Roosevelt Elk wandering the forests.
It's best to visit in June so that you can enjoy the four-day fun that is Pony Express Days Festival, with a barn dance, gymkhana, parade and chili-cook off.
