Wedding Rock at Patrick’s Point State Park in Trinidad, California

Wedding Rock is a major landmark on the large rocky headland that makes up Patrick’s Point at Patrick’s Point State Park. The parking lot at Wedding Rock gives trail access to several other worthy landmarks in the central portion of the park (Lookout Rock, Ceremonial Rock, Mussel Rocks). The main hike is to Wedding Rock and the rugged shoreline below it. This trail drops directly down from the parking area. When the trail splits, the left branch climbs up to the overlook on Wedding Rock and the right branch descends to the beach. There is no sand there and the water is foamy white from the crashing waves, but it’s a beautiful spot. Rock climbers might be scaling the cliff face behind the beach.

From the parking lot the Rim Trail heads south to Patrick’s Point Overlook, the summit of Lookout Rock, and another beach access at Rocky Point. Hiking north on the Rim Trail leads to the Rim Trail Overlook and a path down to the shore at Mussel Rocks.

Many camping options exist in the park, but they fill up in the summer months so reserve your spot ahead of time. If you seek a sandy beach, Agate Beach at the north end of the park is one of the best in the area. Get a map when you pay to enter the park and plan to spend the entire day here.

Since you were wondering, it is not uncommon to get married here!
