Singletrack trail through beautiful redwood trees.

Multi-use trail.

Description

The Old Cabin Trail can be traversed in both directions, but it's easiest if going from east to west. Its pretty level and straight, but has a short, fairly steep section that twists around. The climb out will get the heart pumping.

The climb out in the westward direction is less technical and probably easier. Either way you go on Old Cabin Trail you'll experience a wonderful run through an amazing area of redwood trees. This trail is a useful route if you want to connect between the western and eastern parts of the park without going to the bottom or all they way up to where Long Meadow and Chinquapin Trail merge together.
