Your first impression of Loeb may well be the scent of the myrtlewood forest ... a crisp, bay leaf aroma. The park is nestled in a grove of these lovely trees. Many of the trees in the park are well over 200 years old. The Chetco River swirls and dances just beyond the park. Several campsites and three rental cabins face the river. During the year, you can fish, swim and raft, or just walk a self-guided streamside nature trail. The river offers some of the finest fall and winter salmon and steelhead fishing on the south coast. You can bank fish from the gravel bar or use a drift boat. Throughout spring and summer, you may see scampering chipmunks, hear chirping osprey or see a family of river otters frolicking in the water. The northern most redwood grove in the U.S. can be reached by a .75 mile self-guided River View Trail adjacent to the Chetco River.

Nice easy trail.

Beautiful area, very poor signage. The trail splits at a bench shortly after starting the National Forest loop (you can park and start at the mouth of this loop or begin with the state park river trail about 3/4 of a mile away) either way will work but it appears the intent was to have you start to the left leaving the best to the end.
