This was definitely one of the best hikes we have done. The woods were so wild, full of the giant redwoods and covered in green ferns. We wound round through the forest, up and round ridges exploring the lush nature. Then we reached Fern Canyon, and this was a real adventure.
We climbed down to the canyon floor and the 50 foot vertical walls were covered in ferns, like a couple of big hanging gardens
Once we emerged at the beach, we made our way to the seafront passing a couple of lazing Elks by the dunes. After a lovely sunny stroll to Gold Bluff Beach, we found the Miner Trail to take us back through the beautiful and enchanting forest.
We left the state park and headed north up the coast to Crescent City where we found a Super 8 Motel. After a much needed shower we took our stove down to the beach to cook some dinner with the seagulls.
