“Surprisingly Splendid!”
Review of Otis Johnson Park

Otis Johnson Park
Ranked #18 of 39 things to do in Fort Bragg
Attraction details
Reviewed 4 October 2016

This park isn't the easiest place to find. It is located in the housing part of Fort Bragg and you would never guess it is a park of such magnitude from the parking. It looks like a dead end rail with brick parking spaces, and you walk down a trail with houses on both sides. At first it seemed sketchy, but once you make it to the stairs it is a whole different world. There is hiking and giant red wood trees, a small waterfal and lovely stream that runs through the entirety of the park. Very serene with lots of greenery that it not often seem near the beaches of the city. It does offer a few picnic tables, but just a warning if it has or is raining be sure to wear appropriate shoes because the dirt can easily turn to mud. This park is utterly beautiful! It feels like you stepped out of the city and inot the forest. I owuld not recommend going at night as I did not see any lighting and there were a few homeless people wandering around the park when we visited near susnet. But over all it is a must see and a great change of scenery if you want to see something other than ocean.

It's a sweet little forest with redwoods, ravines, and various bridges over the creek which goes into Pudding Creek. Nice to climb around, but there's also wide trails with stairs for relaxed enjoyment.

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.
