Ferndale - Russ ParkBluff Street
Ferndale, California 95536
Russ Park is a bird sanctuary with over three miles of walking trails. The park encompasses 110 acres and has some really nice views of the town. There is also a pond in the park which is open from dusk to dawn.
How to get there:
From Highway 101 (in either direction), take the Ferndale/Fernbridge exit and drive toward Ferndale. Turn left on Ocean Avenue. The park will be on your right not too far down the road. If you reach the cemetery, you've traveled just a bit too far.
This park is very relaxing but if you're looking for a workout, you can find that challenge here as well. There are no facilities at this park.
Other things to do in the area:
If you're looking for more trails, Guthrie and Fleener Creek both have trails that lead to the ocean and are just past Centerville Beach.
