Smith River Scenic Byway is a 27.9 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Crescent City, CA that features a river and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for scenic driving and is accessible year-round.
This is a beautiful ride through timber country. I was 14 the first trip and I have loved it ever since.
AWESOME!! Had a great time starting at the Battery Point Lighthouse in Crescent City, CA. Fantastic scenic drive with many pulloffs and lookouts for slow-pokes like me who like to take in the scenery. Great trail down to the bank (quick and easy hike/walk) partway through the drive to soak in some river power.
