Background: This rugged, wooded headland juts into the Pacific Ocean, providing spectacular views and great habitat for marine birds and mammals, including gray whales (especially spring). Songbirds inhabit its lush forests.?Headland trails lead to views of offshore sea stacks populated by black oystercatchers and other marine birds, some of which nest here. Palmer?s Point is known for its tidepools and as a favorite haul-out site for harbor seals and sea lions.
Visit a recreated Yurok village - 'Sum?g' - consisting of traditional style family houses, a sweat house, changing houses, a redwood canoe, and a dance house.
