Small park, big redwoods and few people. Great way to spend a few hours!

This is a great find. We saw it on the map it was on the way from Mendocino to our next stop, Napa Valley. So glad we took the time to visit. It is a small park with about a two mile loop hike in a valley floor loaded with huge redwoods and few people. The trail is very easy and starts along a small creek. The trail is relatively flat and easy to find. It does go a little deeper into the forest but the trail becomes unmarked so don't travel in too far past the signs that direct you where to cross over and head back on the other side of this narrow valley. As you walk, you feel as if you are in an enchanted forest.

Although it is small I would definitely return because of the solitude and beautiful tall redwoods. There is no entrance fee, limited parking and there are a few picnic tables where you park.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.

Redwoods

It is said the oldest redwoods live here, was incredible to hike in peace and quite under these giants

Beauty Over The Hill

This is a epic spot for a good family trip. I have been a few times and can recommend this to anyone looking to see some giants. Make sure to walk back far enough to catch a glimpse of the biggest redwood.
