This place is pretty cool! Took the advice of others and parked at the cemetery and it's a short hike from there to the actual blowhole. During my time there was very little water in it tides would roll in and then out but it was beautiful. Be careful of poison oak and stay on the trail. I did not see any ropes or anyway down to the punchbowl so it must of been removed, it's a site to see for sure though.

Very cool! Park at the cemetery, short walk to see the punch bowl. Not sure it's a blow hole anymore, but very cool to see. Very precarious climb down, but we made it no problem. Muddy and steep with some ropes tied off. Looks like there was some slides with the rough winter california had, so be careful for loose soil. Some of the ropes had been half buried from slides

I've taken this exceptional walk many times. One more important than all the others combined. Many years ago when I fell in Love with the most wonderful person I've ever met in my life, Vickie! Unfortunately I managed to screw things up a few years later and lost this person. The moment will always be one of my most precious memories. The beauty, atmosphere and wonder all set a magical moment.

It was a really fun hike on a trail with a ton of great views. We decided to walk the entire trail, and it was a lot of fun. We ate lunch on the trail, but at a nice pace it still took us a little over 4 hours to walk. Keep that in mind if you get there late. Bathrooms are also located throughout the trail, which was nice. All in all, it was tons of fun, and I'd love to go back and walk it again.

Amazing hike through an ancient forest. Very thick and lush, was a little creepy at times :)

I parked just outside the gate and walked in so I didn't have to pay the 6 bucks to park. I had a great day and took my time.

We walked along the boardwalk through the Pygmy Forest and then hiked along Fern Canyon trail (2.3 miles) & then back by way of the Old Logging Road trail (1.2 miles) = 3.5 miles total. There is free parking at the Pygmy Forest trailhead off of Little River Rd. The Fern Canyon trail is a beautiful walk through an old forest. There were so many old massive trees that had been burnt down. It was amazing to see how big they once were and how old they are. There are a few bridges along the trail and a small waterfall - that would probably be pretty nice in the spring.

Nicely shaded complete with gurgling brook. Not very trafficked, though the height of the season. Would love to do this again in a light rain with the ferns glistening...
