Hike/Park Description:
Bothe is a wonderful little park in the wine country full of shade trees and redwoods, one of the decisions for picking it on this warmish spring day. There aren't that many trails here, but the ones there are, are exceptionally pretty. Today we opted for the hike down Redwood and back Ritchey Canyon, about a 3 mile deep forest hike with a few little detours.

See our Park page for more information.
