Description

With 24 ft of total elevation change over the course of its length, Tafoni (Upper) is a mellow cruise on old logging road. As you can see in the elevation profile, it's high points are at the ends, with a dip near the middle. None of the grades are steep. Lots of foot traffic from users heading to the tafoni sandstone formations on Tafoni Trail (Lower).

If you're starting from the main Skeggs trailhead, follow the signs to the right to get to the start of Tafoni. If using Tafoni (Upper) to return to the trailhead, make sure at the intersection with Fir Trail that you are taking the trail heading up and east (Tafoni - Upper) and not down and west (Tafoni - Lower). Note: bikes are allowed on this trail.

Flora & Fauna

Redwoods, douglas fir, iris. Sometimes banana slugs.
