CA – Fort Bragg

    Fort Bragg: The Ten Mile Coastal Trail starts near MacKerricher State Park and runs north of town along the Mendocino Coast (Town of Mendocino is south of Fort Bragg). The trail provides seven miles of asphalt of variable quality, the remains of a lumber company road which ran parallel to Highway 101. The corridor began life as a railroad line to bring lumber to the to the mill in Fort Bragg. One middle section of something under a mile was washed out and has become an unpaved foot trail, but the V2 Aero Skates managed it. Some pockets of loose sand were annoying, but the dunes are beautiful as well as the juxtaposition of crashing surf on the west, and coastal range hills on the east. The trail has its own website:     Henry Laughlin
