Ten Mile River (California)
Ten Mile River is in northern Mendocino County, California, United States. It is named for the fact that its mouth is 10 miles (16 km) north of the mouth of the Noyo River. The lands around lower Ten Mile River provide valuable freshwater and saltwater marsh habitat for a variety of birds. The Ten Mile River Estuary, Ten Mile Beach, and Ten Mile State Marine Reserve together form a marine protected area that extends from the estuary out to five nautical miles. Ten Mile Beach is also part of MacKerricher State Park, which extends approximately five miles southward from the mouth of the river to Cleone and includes approximately 1,300 acres (530 ha) of the "most pristine stretch of sand dunes [in California]."
