Palmer’s Point at Patrick’s Point State Park in Trinidad, California

Palmer’s Point is the southern beach access at Patrick’s Point State Park north of the town of Trinidad. Government maps have labeled this beach as Cannonball Beach for years, but the state park has the entire area signed for Palmer’s Point. It’s best to visit this location at low tide to see the marine life in the abundant tide pools. This area is popular for whale-watching during the winter-spring migration. Benches and picnic tables with great vantage points are provided on the bluff. From the parking lot at the end of Palmers Point Road there is a steep hiking trail with stairs that leads down to Cannonball Beach. True to it’s name, the beach is filled with cannonball-sized boulders and much larger ones which make it tough to travel far from the beach access.There are three campgrounds in the park so consider coming here and staying for a while. Hiking trails meaner all about Patrick’s Point State Park so get a map from the visitor center when you arrive. Note that this region is frequently cool and foggy so plan accordingly.
