Beautiful trail that includes Fern canyon as well. Clintonia and Fern Canyon are 2 of my favorite places in the park. When you start up Miner's Ridge it is an old road that changes to a single track when you cross the 1st bridge. The southern part of Clintonia takes you out of redwoods for a little ways before you get back to beautiful old growth redwoods. After you make the turn on James Irvine there was a massive tree down that you have to navigate through. It was a little confusing to my lab. And then you get to go down the trail to Fern Canyon where the steps simply lead into the creek... With all the rain there was a lot of water to go through. At last, you're on the road and even it is very pretty. This is one I highly recommend and will do again soon. Only reason it's not a 5 is having to walk the road.
