About Caspar Headlands State Natural Reserve in Mendocino, California

The Caspar Headlands State Natural Reserve protects a very small amount of land around homes on a headland south of Caspar State Beach. There is no beach access here, but it’s a popular fishing spot and a great place to walk around if the winds aren’t too strong. Short hiking trails explore the bluff with great views in almost all directions. The point has a view of the ocean, Caspar Anchorage Cove, and Caspar Beach. Seals congregate on a large flat rock straight out from the point. To get here from Caspar State Beach head south on Point Cabrillo Drive then turn right onto S Caspar Drive and continue to Headlands Drive. You’ll have to park outside of Headlands Drive as that road is only for residents to use. Before you go, swing in at nearby Russian Gulch State Park where the Mendocino State Parks office issues free permits for access to this reserve.
