Trail shared by Nick Wilder

Beautiful, chilly redwood forest and waterfall along Sonoma Creek.

Nick Wilder

Features River/Creek · Waterfall

Runner Notes

This trail is particularly slick and often wet - watch your footing on the steep parts!

Description

This short trail isn't a destination, but it's a great short route to add on to other trails in this area. From either end, descend steep trail and stairs to the canyon floor. Enjoy the massive redwood trees and much cooler temperatures than the surrounding area. The short stretch along the creek is particularly nice, and stop to enjoy a 20' waterfall which flows most of the year.
