This is a small Natural Site off US101 that few people know about. If you are in the neighbourhood, you must stop here. There is a parking lot and a short hike on a boardwalk to see the special Darlingtonia plants. It is magical !

Well worth the visit, fascinating little glade of carnivorous Cobra plants. Educational, fun and worth 1/2 hour it takes to see! Short walk, handicapped-friendly, public restroom nearby.

This is a quick short stop along Hwy 101 to stretch your legs a bit and has restrooms. The trail is short and easy and has a platform to look at the Darlingtonia plants, just look at the pictures.
