Orick - Dry Lagoon State ParkPark Road
Orick, California 95555
Dry Lagoon is indeed dry but offers an amazing beach and a nice coastal trail. There are picnic tables and plenty of places to stretch out or walk along the beach as the waves crash at your feet.
How to get there:
The exit for Dry Lagoon State Park will be on the west side of Highway 101 just south of Stone Lagoon and north of Big Lagoon; roughly 20 minutes north of Trinidad. Check out the map for more details.
Be on the lookout for Roosevelt Elk in the area. While beautiful, they are wild and can kick your butt. Be cautious.
Other things to do in the area:
Visit Big Lagoon, Stone Lagoon and Freshwater Lagoon while you're in the area. Trinidad State Beach is to the south and Fern Canyon is to the north/west.
