Short trek to the redwoods. Not a very clear trail. But it was nice to see the redwoods not far off the road.

A very short hike to the gulch but it's so pretty. I was very happy to see the redwoods. You can also scramble up some rocks at the end and there is a hike-in camping area too.

when I went there was a small trickle of water. it's a 5 minute hike. Real pretty, but I would recommend going after a rain to see more water.

Didn't realize the redwoods were this far south. Short trail up and down through the redwoods with side trails to the waterfalls. Enjoyed the hike.

This simple little trail can become your greatest challenge once it ends. The "beaten path" narrows and becomes quite a climb until you reach the end at an old stone fire pit on a flat. This is where the challenge can begin. You can either turn around and go back after relaxing on the peaceful little flat, or you can begin to climb rocks and risk getting your feet wet. Climbing over rocks and fallen redwoods you can continue up via the actual falls. It is challenging and at times, dangerous, but one of my favorite trails in the area. You can really only climb up another quarter to half a mile before reaching a giant boulder that blocks any further advancement. An extremely steep climb to the right may fool you into thinking you can continue, but once you utilize it and reach the top of the boulder, you see an even more steep decline adorned with poison oak on the other side.
