A great trail to hike - very few people in the morning (we saw 1 person total). It was hard to find the trailhead from the parking lots, but you can park at either the campground day area lot 1 (hike back up to the road) or begin at the Spirea Nature Loop parking lot.

Lots of old redwood stumps to see and a few surprises from the distant past. Some large cast iron pieces from old logging equipment can be found along the west leg of the trail. The optional hike (400m more) to the lookout was worth it for a place to sit, but the view is mostly blocked by trees. No real 'view point' on this hike.

Quite wet right now. Bring waterproof hikers and be prepared to jump through active water rock ways on the path. Clear path, great signage.

We parked in the beach parking area and according to the gps we were right at the spot to start the hike. However there were no signs to show where the trail started. So we basically pulled out the gps and we had to walk to the main road in order to just find the Trail. Terrible markings but the scenery and tranquility was unsurpassed. A pretty good hike, I'd say in the easy to moderate category.
