We just spent a few days down in California to visit the Redwoods for our 10th Anniversary. This trail is called the Damnation Creek trail and took us through majestic Redwood groves down to the Ocean. The trail was steep and fun going down but going up was another matter. It is a 4 mile round trip hike and the last 1. 4 miles drops 1,000 feet from the forest to the Ocean. I carried Sollie up in the backpack most of the way back up and man that was a workout. It was a beautiful hike and I highly recommend it if you ever find yourself in the Del Norte Coast Redwoods.
