Description

Journey along the Saddler Skyline Trail for a pleasant experience amidst established woodlands rife with diverse wildlife and species of edible berries.

Starting at the junction with the Trestle Loop Trail, begin hiking the trail west as it follows an undulating course up and over a low ridge. Along the way, take a break from navigating switchbacks to enjoy a copious array of edibles, including thimbleberry, California blackberry, and huckleberry. While this trail has plenty of berries to offer, you won't be the only one competing for them: red foxes, gray squirrels, and a host of native bird species love to peruse this area in search of tasty snacks. Needless to say, make sure to bring your camera to capture these beautiful animals caught in the act.

On the opposite side of the ridge, the trail continues in typical form to its end in a junction with the Trestle Loop Trail.

Saddler Skyline is easy to access from the Mill Creek Campground in the Del Norte section of Redwood National and State Parks. And it connects to the other campground-area trails, such as Hobbs Wall and Trestle Loop.
