Fun hike in an Oak Savanna forest. We saw an eagle on a snag, newts, deer sign, mushrooms, and lots of other birds while we were there. Great photo opportunities.
It's steep at the beginning, but kids could do it. The trail is not flat and can get muddy.
They have a pit toilet, but it's usually dirty as it's close to highway 22.
Very crowded on the weekend. The path was nicely paved, but needed to be a little wider for the different skills of the riders. I wouldn't take kids again, especially on the weekend. I have teens, and they were timid to get run over by the experienced riders.
Bathrooms were pit toilets and were not clean from over use. Some litter, not too bad.
Crossing the bridge was fun for all of us. The forest was gorgeous.
I would try again, but maybe first thing in the morning, or during the week.
Beautiful little redwood trail that is only one of two places redwoods are in Oregon and this one almost straddles the Ca border. I found this online somewhere and decided to do it a year ago. The only disappointment is that it is so short and takes a little time to get to. There are some beautiful old growth redwoods that are definitely in a place you wouldn't expect. The trail is 3 miles up a very little used dirt road off the Winchuck. There are a few old logging roads on the way up that are nice hikes that I have done with my dog and I have never seen anyone else there...
One of my go to hikes with my dogs. On the Crissey Field end they have to be leashed but on the other end there are far less people and Pelican doesn't require a leash. Beautiful beach with great open ocean views. Off in the distance most days you can see the lighthouse and many rock formations including Camel Rock out in front of Crissey Field. You also have the option of playing with the dogs or fishing in the Winchuck River. Very common to see Seals, Sea Lions and Ospreys on the hunt near the mouth of the river.
