Like all Mendocino county walks along the headlands, the views of the coastline and access to hidden coves and private beaches is lovely. This particular state reserve features two trails. Marked on a single sign is a headlands trail and the pygmy forest trail with milage for both. I have stopped here twice now during my week long stay in the area and have yet to find the way to the pygmy forest. There is a billboard at the trailhead but no map of the area. Also at the trailhead is a single porta-potty......that was full to the top! These overflowing porta-potties have not been uncommon this week. The downside of this is if you can't stomach going in you are then forced to hold it or, what seems to be the more popular choice , find a bush along the trail, as scattered throughout the trees and bushes are wads of tp, diapers, etc. I recommend not looking down so as your enjoyment of the walk and view is not diminished.
