Description

An area straight out of prehistoric times. This large canyon is completely covered with Ferns and it follows a small stream that empties into the Pacific Ocean. Small sections of boardwalk and dirt paths meander through this giant canyon, which is a MUST while in the Redwoods area.

Short Hike: Small road through old growth forest leads to parking area. Possible stream crossings in spring/early summer.

Family Friendly: This is easily accessible, great for kids.

Marvelous Canyon with meandering stream that you cross repeatedly. Canyon walls with dense ferns. Must do.

The creek never reached my knees, but it's hard to get through this unique canyon without splashing through ankle-deep water. Well worth the effort.
