“The easier leg of the Hope Creek/Ten Taypo Loop heading up Hope Creek from Newton B. Drury Scenic Parkway.”— Zander Göpfert
Usually linked with the neighboring Ten Taypo Trail, this is the easier of the two segments that heads up Hope Creek through a riparian (creekside) habitat, surrounded by a stately old-growth redwood forest.
After three-quarters of a mile, this trail begins to level off with another three-quarters of a mile up to a broad ridge.
