Did this with Foothills as a big loop back to Elk Prarie Campground. Amazing old growth trees and very quiet. Has just under 1000ft of elevation and a great half day trip

Rhody is an awesome trail and is one i'll do until i'm unable. What a great redwood loop! I'll be back with friends for sure...Awesome redwoods with a lot of redwood "caves" for lack of a better description. Many big, old growth trees down that you walk through along with some hollowed out trees as you will see in my pics. Highly recommend this one... With this one I've done every trail possible in Prairie Creek... but I'll simply do most of them again!
