Hiking and Biking

The Mendocino Coast is surrounded by both redwood and pine forests, ocean bluffs and beach coves, and is a wonderful area to explore on foot or by bike.

The Inn at Schoolhouse Creek is the perfect home base to start your day with a healthy breakfast at our Creekside Restaurant. Before heading out for a day of adventure stop by the desk to learn the options for road biking, mountain biking, and hiking trails.

A few nearby favorites are the beach and trail at Big River. The old Big River fire road continues 6 miles and is surrounded with ferns, redwoods, and follows the path of the majestic Big River. This road is perfect for a family outing on foot or on bikes. Make sure to keep an eye on the river as you proceed to see the always playful river otter and seals basking in the sun.

Another great scenic hike is located just North of the Inn at Gordon Lane. This bluff hike takes adventurers to private beaches, down to amazing tide pools, and is a wonderful area to take a picnic and whale watch.

Stop by the desk and we can make recommendations for your group or family.
