“A nice trail leading through the forest with some redwoods and a waterfall at the end.”— Andreea Danielescu
Family Friendly While the full out and back distance might be a little far for younger kids, older kids will love measuring themselves against these giants.
Once you've seen the Boy Scout tree, you can head back down to the main trail and continue onward a short distance to Fern Falls. The falls have a nice resting spot where visitors can enjoy the waterfall. This is a great place to have snack before heading back to the car.
