Trail shared by Zander Göpfert

A short, undulating section of the Coastal Trail from the 101 trailhead ending at the DeMartin Primitive Camp area.

Runner Notes

Tough footing make this one a dicey option, though the trail is doable for more experienced runners.

Description

Though short in length, this section can take time. The footing is often tricky as the trail is mostly comprised of matted grass and vegetation instead of bare ground. That said, this lush stretch of forest is a beautiful, secluded area with easy access to the 101 and without any of the noise or nuisance.

Flora & Fauna

Rhododendron, huckleberry, redwoods, red alder, dark spruce, and fir all dot this route.
