Redwood Excursion Skunk Train - Known to locals as the Skunk Train, this railroad is like no other in California. Started in 1885 as a logging railroad it now operates passenger trains through the Redwood Forest, along the Noyo River and over the Coastal Mountain Range. The “All Aboard!” call starts you on either a half day or a full day trip through natural beauty you won’t soon forget. Visit the Skunk Train web site.

Pygmy Forest - Trees one hundred years old are six to eight feet tall with a diameter the size of a quarter. The “soil” is grey and hard as cement.

Nurseries/Fuschiarama - Hundreds of beautiful plant species to observe or purchase.

Glass Beach

Glass Beach - What once was the town dump is now an attraction for both visitors and residents. A beach unlike any other you are likely to find, for this beach is covered in small, now smooth bits of colored glass. Tiny bits of glass, like those you might find in an aquarium, now fills the beach from one end to the other. You can walk for hours picking up different colors, and some have even been known to keep a couple of interesting pieces they find.

World Class Micro Brewery

World Class Micro Brewery - The Brewery opened in 1988. We couldn’t be more proud of them. Our North Coast Brewery has been named One of the Ten Best Breweries in the World by the American Beer Association. Needless to say, no trip to Fort Bragg would be complete without sampling a little home brew and maybe catching a tour of the brewery itself located north of downtown.

Horse Back Riding - Want to take a horse back ride along the beach at sunset? Or meander through the woods at a cowpokes pace? How about a brisk trot through the foam on a beach while the waves crash right next to you? Ricochet Ridge Ranch in Fort Bragg can make all your horse-based dreams come true. The ranch offers both English and Western riding. Half hour to all day private rides, as well as scheduled half hour rides. What about a week-long riding vacation? Ricochet Ridge Ranch can set it all up for you.

Train and Lumber Museum

Train and Lumber Museum - In the middle of town, on the west side of Main Street, perched atop a small knoll sits a beautiful old Victorian home known as the Guest House Museum. Within the museum walls you will find display after display on local history, including logging, fishing, trains, and even pictures of those families who used to reside in our fair city many years ago. So take a step back through history and explore the birth of the largest town on the Mendocino Coast.

Galleries - Ever wondered what would happen if you surrounded people with natural beauty for years and then asked them to express it? We know what would happen… a small town only four miles long would be gifted with enough artisans to fill more than six galleries. And how would a small town go about celebrating those artisans? Why, it would hold parties on the First Friday of every month to open the new exhibits at all those local galleries.

Pudding Creek Trestle - The last remaining wooden train trestle of an era when logging trains ran along the shore, then inland along the Ten Mile River to pick up redwood logs for return to the Union Lumber Company mill. The tracks were torn up in 1954 and logging trucks continued to use the trestle to deliver logs to what is now Georgia Pacific.

Tidepools, Headlands, Secluded Beaches - The state parks have miles of beaches and rock formations. With endless interest you could be spending many pleasurable hours studying the many and various colorful life forms along the shore and coastal inlets.

Kayaking and Canoeing - Want to take to the rivers and explore? What better way then in a kayak or canoe? Visit Noyo Harbor from the water level, explore the peaceful intertidal environment of Noyo River, paddle up Big River and picnic on a spot of beach, or brave the currents and paddle right into the ocean! See sights you can’t get to on foot and would never dream of from a car. Are you a novice to paddling around? No problem! Lessons and safety equipment are available (including wetsuits). The Coast offers two places for rentals.
