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.
