Patricks Point
Patricks Point State Park, north of Trinidad California


Patricks Point State Park preserves a spectacular ragged headland with offshore rocks, pocket beaches, and dense Sitka spruce forest. It is notable for its extensive CCC stonework, coastal trail system, campgrounds, and associations with Native American culture. Parts of the movie Jurassic Park II were filmed here.
