Jenner, California Map

Fun, varied trail, but definitely moderate, not hard.

This trail DOES NOT have any ocean view or access. There is a trail across the street however. As for this trail...it is just ok. A pretty walk in the woods. Nothing outrageously beautiful, but not totally boring. A fair amount of bugs, so bring spray. Very easy hike with a few hills.

Definitely a more moderate hike, but solid nonetheless with great views of the ocean and some nice redwood spotting's through some lusher forest area

So. Many. Bugs. The good thing was the trail is well maintained. Make sure you have $8 for parking and note this trail has no views of the ocean... there is an adjoining trail that takes you to the ocean across the street.

My favorite trail, but don't listen to the rating. This is moderate.

Beautiful views the whole way, everyone should do this hike.

not hard but does have a steady incline for the first 1-2 miles followed by nice view of the mouth of the Russian river to inspire you to continue on. moderate exposure so bring cover/ sun screen. A few amazing moments with redwoods and firs are sure to be had but keep your elbows in when the trail narrows or you'll be grazed by poison oak. you can turn right toward red hill to just stay on the loop but i recommend going out and back the extra bit to the redwood groves. the view of the ocean at the end definitely makes it worth it and best to give yourself enough time for the hike down to the beach after. plant species include coyote brush, coffee berry, firs, tan oak, redwood, scrub oak, coast live oak....

Fun hike, in and out of lush greenery. Great ocean view. Good beginning climb, easy after that.
