The shoreline north of Fort Bragg up towards Ten Mile River includes a series of dune fields blown inland across a low terrace. But at the southern end, these dunes are interrupted by some rocky headlands, including Laguna Point in MacKerricher State Park. The point is flat on top - maybe 6-8 meters in elevation - and characteristic of the terrace along here. Just north of the point is Lake Cleone, located in low drainage behind the barrier beach.
100 years ago, local log mills hauled their lumber on rails to a dock out on the point and the remnants of the rail bed and the trestles still remain perched on the beach.
