“A manageable grade and views of the Smith River and surrounding forests make this a favorite with all visitors.”— Zander Göpfert
Family Friendly River views and a cool bridge at the east end of the hike make this a winner for kids.
This is a lovely trail that heads next to the beautifully turquoise Smith River. Along the way, you can expect views of both the riparian (near-stream) forest and the old-growth redwoods.
The southern end of this one connects to the River Trail and Mill Creek Trail JSSP near the Stout Grove Trailhead and parking area.
