REDWOOD TRAIL

Trail/Park Description:
It was a pretty cool day as we started out and there weren't many of us, but it wound up to being a delightful hike. Spring had sprung, sort of, but there was still the light hand of winter in the air as we left the fog and climbed to the higher elevations of the Coyote Trail. After that it was downhill into the lush green canyons of the Ritchey Trail. This is probably the best short round trip hike in the park, and we weren't disappointed.

See our Park page for more information.
