Other reviewers have given good information about this park. It is small. It is a "hidden gem." It is a redwood park at a higher elevation than Humboldt or Prairie Creek. It is a great place to see native flowers and ferns, especially in spring,...More

First impression is the park is small, but lovely. Nestled in a redwood grove between rout 36 and a lazy beautiful river. The staff are amazing, knowledgeable and kind. They do walkthroughs every few hours and you can always stop them if you have questions....More

This park is indeed off the beaten path, about 15 miles east of Hwy 101 on a narrow winding road. It's a gorgeous drive, with a combination of old forest, small farms and a few tiny towns. We wanted to do the short loop hike...More
