Outdoors this Big Make for Big Adventures. Explore the Fringe of Old California Where Nature Outnumbers People

There’s a feeling in our salt air. It’s a feeling hard to describe. But when you arrive, you’ll feel it. And you might hear it. It’s calm. It’s quiet. And it’s as if someone or something is whispering “stay”.

This is a place for spirited independence where we encourage entertaining yourself and getting lost in wonder as part of the journey. Awe-inspiring rewards are for those who make the time to go out of the way. Who walk the trail alone. Who choose to leave a legacy of memories spent with their children, family and friends. Who choose to count the moments by smiles and not “shoulds”.

A raw, unsung California spirit ripples throughout Del Norte County and our community. This is the last stop. The last coast. The fringe of Old California where nature outnumbers people.
