Nice walk after a day in the car. Needed something to do for half an hour of so. Plus, geocaching was possible there.

Lush forest, big tall redwoods, easy trails. Fort Bragg area had 16-24 mph winds all day. Heard about this secluded little area & decided to try it. Not so little, spent a good 1.5 hour wandering & one or two trails looked too rugged for me but the rest were easy for a gal with compromised knees. Bench's along the way.
It's not a flat park. Little trails send you up and down. Relatively easy, but surely not handicap accessible. We let our dogs run off leash, no one else was in the park. They would run ahead then turn around and wait for us to catch up. Bring bug spray. We didn't think about grabbing ours when we left our room. Wish we had! Beautiful little hiking spot.
The park is at the end of Laurel Street almost in the middle of Fort Bragg. We've been there early in the morning and could walk around the interesting small trails all alone. It goes up and down, but always good for most hikers. We saw a wonderful vegetation with beautiful flowers and it felt like a wilderness park far away from any civilisation. It's well hidden, but worth a visit.
We found this hidden spot on Trip Advisor. It was easy to locate and parking was fine. Only a few people & dogs in the park with us. We viewed the map of the park on line, and figured we could find the route we wanted to take. However, when we ventured down the hill, there were a few Y's, and no indications which trail went where. Ventured up a steep hill and another hiker told us to continue to see the overlook of Pudding Creek. All told, it was a nice area, but I would not walk it alone. Also take your cell (not sure of the service in the park?) or print a map of the trails. The park needs some TLC but is still a surprise. Have to research Otis Johnson.... The park is ok for seniors who walk a lot and are fit. Not sure I would take my young grandkids with us...
