Hike Description

Hike Description

Pro Contributor

This short, flat hike is not about big vistas or challenging climbs, but it still has a lot to offer to the hiker who can take it slowly and be observant. Much of the hike is along the Chetco River and through the marvelous myrtle wood trees that were the original impetus for preserving this tract of land as a park. The climate is wet and cool, providing a great environment for mushrooms, moss and ferns.

The trail starts at the day use area of Alfred Loeb State Park and follows the north bank of the river, crossing several small streams on the way, which add a little up and down to the walk. There are some nice specimens of the Oregon myrtle wood (Umellaularia Californica) along the way, with unusual branch formations and embedded with ferns. The trail ends at a road crossing, but the hike can continue on the Redwood Nature Trail loop across the road.
