I grew up here and it is amazingly beautiful!

a totally gorgeous walk in the redwoods.

Very pretty trail, some steep sections, overall a good little hike!

Very fun and accessible with plenty of amazing views!!

Beautiful hike and easy access. Lots of banana slugs and birds!

A lot more small trees here. Around the Sanctuary there are several small parking lots to give hikers or walkers very good access. This place is put together pretty good for the locals. Saw more birds and dogs today in a long, long time. I saw the biggest flock of shorebirds on the wing than I've seen in 30 years. A very healthy population here...

Ducks, ducks,ducks.....everywhere ducks and beautiful views of Humboldt bay including the Samoa Bridge. Easy walk most can do and enjoy. Beautiful day on the bay with a few kayakers on the outside in the bay. There is a boat launch here as well.

Did several trails here in Arcata Marsh and enjoyed then all. No less than a dozen different kinds of birds including hawks. With all the ducks here i was surprised i didn't see an eagle. Beautiful day!

Saw Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary on a map and decided to explore. An absolute great place for birders. So many shorebirds and ducks. A lot of people use these trails and walk their dogs.

Only hiked part of it. I'll take my bike back and do the rest.

Great for hiking and biking. You can choose to do a small potion or the entire trail without any difficulty.

Hiked a portion of the trail 4 miles to Clam.Beach.

Fun hike! Hardly any elevation gain, made it an easy hike with my dad on the weekend when he came to visit.

Great hike, nothing too tough but steep enough in places to offer a challenge. No potties from the Arcata trailhead. Gorgeous redwoods, quiet and relaxing.

Beautiful young redwood forest, lots to do in the park. Hike, bike, horseback... kid friendly park with bathroom amenities.

None of the trails are too steep and parking is ample.

Wish I had this park behind my college

Decent trails, but without a mapping application it would be very easy to get off track or lost. It's a large web of trails and absolutely nothing is well marked.

Nice place to go for a walk and see some big trees. There's a nice frisbee golf course. The dog loves all the smells.
