Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park: First Day Hike- A River Wild
Park: Henry Cowell Redwoods SP
On this 4 hour / 5 mile moderate pace hike we’ll visit some of the park’s "back-country". Initially traversing old growth Redwood and Douglas-fir forest, we’ll enjoy a little-visited part of the San Lorenzo River canyon along the River Trail and descend to take our break on river side sand bars. Maximum elevation change is about 500 ft. Suitable for adults, and young adults who are diligent hikers. Dress in layers for changeable weather and temperatures. Bring sturdy walking shoes, water and snacks. Meet at 11:00 AM in front of the Nature Store (edge of parking lot) at Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park. Please leave pets at home. Enter the park from Hwy 9 just south of downtown Felton, CA. Heavy rain cancels.
