Strenuous but rewarding day hike or backpacking trip in Big Basin Redwoods State Park.

The Westridge-Henry Creek trail is a 15.3 mile loop just outside of Davenport. The trail runs alongside a river for a while. The elevation gain on this hike is killer but the ocean views are well worth it.  

Also no dogs are allowed here :(
