Don’t bother with this one, unless you love disappointment and mosquitoes. There is a geocache here that is a quick grab. The myrtle tree is burnt out and not impressive. Save yourself and hike the Redwoods.

Took Kid 2 on this trail. 11 year old had no trouble and it was a nice short walk. We took took our time and talked about we saw, so it was about 25 minutes. This is easily a 10 minutes walk in and out.
It is a bit soft and a bit muddy in places right now. Totally passable with no problem, though.
Knee warning, it is all uphill on the way in so those looking for a short walk with bad knees should pass.

Did another trail close by and noticed signage for this. Info on trail says it is one of the largest Myrtle trees in the world and is possibly 400 years old. Very short little uphill trail.
