A nice trail leading through the forest with some redwoods and a waterfall at the end.

Runner Notes

This trail can get a little muddy in spots. Watch out for roots all over the trail.

Description

The trailhead will be on the left side of Howland Hill Road and will be well marked. Look for cars parked on the right hand side (north of the road). This is a nice forested path that will take you through some redwoods. Towards the end of the trail will be a set of stairs that leads up to the Boy Scout redwood tree. This behemoth is truly remarkable. The double trunk of the redwood will dwarf any others, and this is a great spot to simply appreciate this incredible tree species.

Once you've seen the Boy Scout tree, you can head back down to the main trail and continue onward a short distance to Fern Falls. The falls have a nice resting spot where visitors can enjoy the waterfall. This is a great place to have snack before heading back to the car.
