The Mendocino Headlands State Park is also beautiful, packed with walkways and is a lovely spot to fully appreciate the Mendocino Coast and even possibly spot whales out on the ocean. The Russian Gulch State Park is one of the most popular hiking destinations, namely due to the stunning 36-foot waterfall sitting halfway through the trail.
