Road Scholar
Program #6463RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Bordered on three sides by grassy meadows and the breaking surf of the Pacific Ocean, free of billboards, traffic lights and box stores, Mendocino remains an unspoiled village closely tied to California’s colorful early history. Experience the area’s stunning beauty and Victorian past on streets lined with old wooden buildings, water towers and fragrant gardens. Delve into Mendocino’s human and natural history through lectures and expert-led field trips.


Highlights

• During an expert-led walk on the Mendocino Headlands and MacKerricher State Park, learn about the region’s often-dangerous logging history.
• Visit the beautifully restored and historically significant Point Cabrillo Lighthouse and the Mendocino Botanical Gardens with its remarkable diversity of plants.
• Explore the renowned Mendocino Art Center perched above the Pacific Ocean, and relish class sessions with the center’s resident artists.

Activity Notes

Walking up to one mile and standing up to a half-hour; some uneven terrain.
