Shingle Mill and Old Growth Redwood Hike

July 23, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

dappled light shines through lush green trees onto a paved pathway

This shaded summer hike takes us through second-growth redwood forest past the remains of an old shingle mill, lost to history. As we climb along Shingle Mill Creek we encounter a massive old-growth redwood. The redwood is hollow, which is probably why it was never logged. After lunch underneath the giant tree, we emerge onto dry grassland, where we loop around to return via Coyote Ridge.

This moderate hike is mostly flat, but covers 6 miles, which is why it is rated “moderate.” There is an uphill section that gains 800 feet over 2.8 miles.

Bring at least one liter of water, lunch, snacks, and appropriate clothing. Rain cancels. Meet at Park Headquarters. Vehicle day-use fee is $10.
