This is one of my absolute favorite hikes. The solitude of this redwood atmosphere with rain or fog is stunning. Hiking down you won't think about the return climb in store for you, which can be difficult for some folks I'm sure. Look for rabbits among the ferns, salamanders, wild irises, and succulent hens and chicks in the cliff-face when you get to the beach. If you walk the beach at low tide and explore the tide pools among the rocks, starfish, anemones and other creatures await, and I never want to leave.
