Purissima Old Town Site Tours

A trail leading through trees at the Purissima Old Town Site

Join us at the Purissima Old Town Site for one of our small, docent-led tours to learn how one of the oldest Coastside towns disappeared. Enjoy a chance to see lots of native flora and fauna and learn about the history of the people who used to live on this site, located on the corner of Highway 1 and Verde Road, on the way to Elkus Ranch. There is uneven terrain and poison oak, so please wear sturdy shoes, long layers, sun protection and bring water. Under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets are $10 for General Admission, $5 for Senior (65+) and Youth (under 18).
