Russ Park - Victorian Ferndale is a 1.7 mile lightly trafficked trail located near Ferndale, CA. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
Good location close to town. Various routes so you can choose how long your hike is.
A nice hike through mountain forests with benches along the way for rest stops. Steep inclines and declines through overgrown bushes, plants, trees, and roots. But great scenic viewpoints among the different trails and distances to choose from with a posted map at each trailhead. It is dog friendly where they can go off-leash as long as they are not aggressive. Very minimal traffic, as I have yet to encounter anyone on any of the trails despite how many cars were parked in the lot.
Great local walk
Beautiful hike. I love bringing visitors here. We get pie after in town
