Zigzag Trail 1 and 2 Loop is a 3.5 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Orick, California that features a river and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
Awesome trail with the exception of Prairie Creek trail. West Ridge Trail for me is 2nd only to Rhododendron. The trail itself and the trees on West Ridge are awesome. Do to the partial western exposure a lot more sun than many of the trails in the park. I definitely like the ridge trails better for the up and down and around aspect of the hike. It gets the heart rate up and keeps it going milder for better exercise than the up and down trails like Zigzag or South Fork. Highly recommend this one and it would be 5 stars if Prairie Creek Trail wasn't part of it...
