What Up With the Hwy 20 Property?

This property is owned by Mendocino Coast Recreation and Park District (MCRPD) and consists of 586 acres including much of the Newman Gulch Watershed, the municipal water source for the city of Fort Bragg.   Unique habitats exist here, including sphagnum bogs and 150 acres of Mendocino Cypress Pygmy Forest.  These areas need to be protected from damage.

This land is currently open to the public for passive recreation including walking and hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding.  It is not open for public off-highway vehicle use now.


The California Recreation Alliance (CRA) has an agreement with MCRPD to use this property for OHV classes and trainings, provide security and clean-up efforts.  Information about their program is available at
