As you start hiking up from the Pacific Ocean, this trail passes through gushing streams, canyons, wooden bridges, ladders and towering redwoods, it gains elevation soon, and opens to the spectacular ocean views once it emerges on the top of the redwoods!
It’s located near Mill Valley, and super popular amongst locals! Expect a lot of hikers here, you won’t be alone!
