This is our first time doing canoeing or paddling an outrigger in Mendocino. The current upstream make it an easy journey but paddling back down towards the ocean was challenging due to the wind and strong currents. I highly recommend canoeing at Big River in Mendocino with Catch-A-Canoe

We also tried mountain biking along Big River which is not steep and great for cycling with children. Only problem is the mosquito attack during summer.

Highly recommend the  horse back riding at Mackerricher State Park coast with Ricochet Ridge Ranch.
