Jug Handle State National Reserve (SNR)

Jug Handle State Natural Reserve is located on the Mendocino coast. The park features a 2.5-mile self-guided nature trail called The Ecological Staircase which explores five wave-cut terraces formed by glacier, sea and tectonic activity that built the coast range.
Each of the terraces was uplifted from sea level about 100,000 years before the one below it. Plants on each terrace represent a more advanced stage in succession, indicating what the previous, next lower terrace may look like in 100,000 years. The lowest terrace consists of prairie; the second is covered with pines; the third supports a unique pigmy forest with knee-high trees possibly several decades old.





Mendocino

The town of Mendocino has beauty, charm, and diversity that is evident from the historic and picturesque look which seems to be locked in a time warp of a bygone Victorian era. The breathtaking locations which offers everything from sandy beaches to jagged cliffs, to the redwood forests and winding country roads. A public fire station and churches.
