A scenic hike with more banana slugs than you can count.

This trail starts out going downhill towards the ocean for the first half, which makes for a tough end to the hike as you trek back up the ridge.  However, there are nice ocean and hilltop views that are worth the climb. On this trail, you'll pass 60+ banana slugs if conditions are right. They are spread out along the trail, so watch your step!

Hike Whittemore Gulch at Purisima Creek Redwoods OSP Reviews

This hike goes down then up, so the end is rough. Lots of greenery and goes by the river or creek a lot.
