HikingBridge out

Super short and cute hike. It was short enough for my wife to handle despite having some pretty bad pain issues. The bridge was out when we went so be aware that the creek can be hard to cross if you don’t want your feet getting wet. Overall, it’s a nice, short walk in the woods.

This is not a valid loop. We had to cross a closed bridge. It is not safe.

Nice place to walk around. Waterfall is not as excited as I expected. Easy trail. All the trees are amazing!

First to Review

The best part about the trail was the swimming hole next to the rock face covered in ferns and mosses...all amidst the redwoods as the trail name suggests. Since we went the day after 4th of July, there was no one around. There's a magic at that spot that makes it more than just the sum of the features, though. You'll just have to go and experience it for yourself.
