The loop was fun. There were plenty of fallen trees that made the trail more exciting! I recommend the trail to for all ages.

Simply amazing! Fairly easy if you have decent balance. If not your feet will definitely get wet. It is a loop trail, but once you start to climb the north side of the canyon wall, it’s better to turn around and go back the way you came. If the hike wasn’t good enough, afterwards we went to the beach, had lunch with elk just up the beach from us.

HikingFeeGreat!

LOVED IT! I got to the trailhead fairly early (for me) and since it’s October, I ended up having the trail to myself. The canyon is so fun to walk through, I almost wanted to return that way, but I did the full loop and it was worth it.

This is one of the best trails I have done anywhere, ever. If you want a complete and varied hike that sees everything that makes the north coast so special, this is it. You'll pass over ridgelines and bridges to see mighty groves of redwoods, a stroll through an undeveloped, pristine beach and the awesome fern canyon. It's moderate, and while there are definitely some challenging points, especially on the clockwise ascent up Miner's Ridge, the biggest factor of the "moderate" rating is the distance. If you take it slow and breathe in the scenery, you'll be able to handle the 25,000-35,000 steps you'll rack up with ease. Parking at the trailhead is limited and fills up on weekends, but there are more than enough spaces by the pullouts on Drury parkway that parking will not be an issue.

Beautiful scenery. Be ready to get wet as they have removed the seasonal creek crossings. As a result even though not crowded it felt a little stacked up as people looked for ways to cross without getting wet. Doing the loop trail (1 mile) means hiking to the end of the canyon then going up stairs and walking back along the top of the canyon then coming back down. $8 cash to get in and it’s a long drive down the dirt road crossing a few streams - I did it in a compact no problem but YMMV.

We decided to so this loop since we only had one day to hike in the Redwoods. Wonderful and rather easy. Beautiful views. Beach was perfect to cool off your feet. We started with Irvine route first, coming back the miner trail was steeper and a little more work. but over all FANTASTIC hike. It took us 5.5 hours.

Your feet WILL get wet - UNLESS you've got waterproof hiking shoes and really good balance. Lots of crossing the stream by climbing over logs or walking across fallen ones. Super short loop, but so much fun. Its beautiful in there. I'd suggest wearing Tevas/Chacos/water shoes.

Worth the trip. Canyon amazing. Kids liked it and did not complain ( hike earlier in day little long). Saw a huge elk in field near parking lot. Taking the family car through 2 streams on the way there was fun.

Beautiful beach and fern canyon trail. The beach reminds me of the PNW beaches, truly vast and breathtaking. Calm and serene yet imposing. Stunning vegetation on the Fern Canyon loop. Beautiful. Seemed like a scene from Narnia

Beautiful trail and not too difficult. It is rated as moderate and the gradients are not too steep. Amazing views. We did it clockwise, from Miner’s Ridge to Gold Bluff’s beach, a walk along the sand in the beach to Fern Canyon and back via James Irvine Trail. Highly recommend.
