Prairie Creek Redwoods Big Loop is a 4.9 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Orick, California that offers the chance to see wildlife and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
I like Big Trees, especially Rhody and Foothill is ok but Prairie Creek Trail for me is the parks worst. I will only be on it when I need to use it as a connector to other trails close by.
Nice easy trail that parallels the parkway so there is occasional car noise. There are several other entrances and passes the Big Tree. Can be part of several loop hikes.
