Trail shared by Zander Göpfert

The easier leg of the Hope Creek/Ten Taypo Loop heading up Hope Creek from Newton B. Drury Scenic Parkway.

Features Birding · River/Creek · Views

Family Friendly A very manageable trail for older kids or for younger kids with the endurance to handle a 3+ mile outing.

Description

Access this trail off the east side of Newton B. Drury Scenic Parkway, across from the Ossagon Trail and trailhead (mile marker 132.74).

Usually linked with the neighboring Ten Taypo Trail, this is the easier of the two segments that heads up Hope Creek through a riparian (creekside) habitat, surrounded by a stately old-growth redwood forest.

After three-quarters of a mile, this trail begins to level off with another three-quarters of a mile up to a broad ridge.
