Nice hike through a pretty remote part of Redwood National Park. To gain access to the trailhead you need to stop by the Kuchel visitor center on the coast to get a pass and the combination to the lock on the access gate. It is about 7 miles up to the gate from 101 and about 6 miles down to the trailhead from the gate. The little extra effort is worth it. The trail runs gently down to the Redwood River through some amazing groves of huge trees. It is about 1.5 miles down, then there is a 1 mile flat loop at the bottom with really interesting flora along with more huge trees.

Got there early in the morning (9ish) and the mist was still there which made the experience more mystical. By the time we made out way back to the top the mist had lifted and it kinda lost that touch, but still beautiful.

Nice short hike - 3 miles, amazing trees! You are going down 600', so plan accordingly.
