Enjoy this moderate 2.5 mile hike through a majestic redwood forest which culminates with a stop at the gorgeous waterfall in Russian Gulch State Park. Most self-guided hikes to the waterfall take half a day, but thanks to a secret access trail, we’ll walk at a leisurely pace, take photos, eat a light snack, and you’ll be back in time for your next adventure. Along the way I’ll share some history and fun facts about Coastal Redwoods. Did you know that they are the tallest trees in the world? Touch the moss, listen to the trickling water in the fern creek, smell the forest's earthiness, and look up into the redwood canopy. You’ll feel such a sense of peace and wonder in this beautiful forest because all of your senses are engaged. If you are new to Fort Bragg or Mendocino, I’m happy to act as your personal concierge as we walk, so feel free to ask me questions about what to do and see during your stay. Note: The trail is a bit steep in one part, as it descends to the waterfall, so if you have mobility issues please check with me before booking. Thanks!

I am an author, a member of the Fort Bragg Visitors’ Committee, and a nature lover who agrees with John Steinbeck that: “The redwoods, once seen, leave a mark or create a vision that stays with you always...from them comes silence and awe.” I’ve lived here for 14 years and served as an enthusiastic travel guide to countless visitors and there's something about the redwoods that moves everyone to a place beyond speech. I hope you’ll let me share this experience with you!

We'll meet at a cafe just south of the Mendocino Botanical Gardens where you can get coffee and use the restroom. From there we will caravan by car to the trail head in the interior of Russian Gulch State Park. We'll make several stops on our hike to learn about redwoods. We'll have a snack and photo stop at the gorgeous waterfall then return by the same trail. It is uphill on the way back, so bring water if you think you'll need it.
