360° VR Panoramas of the Northern California Coast, Coast Ranges, and Redwood Highway
Little River
South of Mendocino, California

Little River (as opposed to Mendocino City's Big River) was originally a lumber town and port, but now is known mostly for its bed and breakfast hotels.

The town adjoins superb Van Damme State Parks, which extends inland from coastal meadows through a redwood canyon to one of the best examples of a pigmy forest.
