Easy, quick hike. Absolutely beautiful - like a magical fairyland walking through the redwoods.

So far, and by far, my least favorite trail in the park. There were no Elk in the meadow either. That would have made it much better. The only saving grace is the creek itself. This is definitely a one and done. Unfortunately I have to use pieces of it as connectors to other trails that are excellent.

Serene dirt mountain road drive in. Beautiful sandy beach. Fern canyon is the best hiking trail ever.

Just an amazing place all around. Seeing all the elk while driving in was breathtaking. I end up hiking "Zig-Zag" trail almost every time I go up there, but ANY trail is just as good. Make sure you check the difficulty on the map first tho, some trails get pretty serious. I spent Christmas Day at Big Tree with my friend and it was an amazing day. Had the entire park to ourselves even!
