Numerous hikes in a beautiful redwood forest. A great stop if you are driving Highway 128 and want to stroll among the trees or take a swim in the Navarro River. If you are looking for a quick stop to stretch your legs and see some gigantic redwood trees, drive to the picnic area and check out the All Access Trail. If you have a little bit more time, check out the Hermit Hut.
A short hike among some gigantic trees. Several of the largest redwood trees in the world are located in this old growth redwood forest between Ukiah and the Coast. The road is narrow and winding so drive with care.
Hike among the meadows and oak woodlands surrounding Lake Mendocino. Spring is my favorite time of the year to hike in the Lake Mendocino Area. April is usually the peak for wildflowers. Definitely watch out for poison oak, ticks, and rattlesnakes.
