State Park: Birding, Fish, Hike, Picnic, Walk, Water Sports
This rustic park offers a place of solitude that invites introspection and wildlife viewing. Stroll along the edge of the Winchuck River estuary until it joins the Pacific Ocean. Birds abound. Harbor seals and California sea lions surf and feed in this rich mix of fresh and salt water. Follow the trail through ancient driftwood logs into a fragile dune system filled with unique native plant species, miniature wetlands, and old-growth Sitka spruce trees.
