  • Hidden Gem, like being transported to a magical forest. Tons of trails to explore, and trees large enough to hide inside. Definitely a wonder of Arcata.

  • A few photos from my hike through the park. This is a beautiful park, less then 200m in and you feel like you are in the deep redwood forests far from civilization. Just make sure to mark starting point. There are several paths and easy to miss your start point…I learned the hard way!đŸ˜‚
  • What a gem! All I had to do was download the pdf map and follow the well-marked trails. The forest is beautiful, tranquil, challenging with its hills (my favorite part), and the locals are friendly and helpful. I felt very safe hiking alone. I will definitely be back. Thank you Arcata!
