This ridge and canyon hike offers dramatic changes in scenery, light and even temperature. An easy first mile follows a road-wide dirt path among pines, oaks, and eucalyptus, exposed to the sky, with views of the foothills and Mount Diablo. Winding down Prince Road, the scenery changes, shaded by bay and madrone trees. Suddenly, you’ll find yourself in the seclusion of a thriving redwood grove, walking beside Redwood Creek, with its banks full of ferns and water-loving plants. The trail heads back up to evergreens and views again. Wear layered clothing to accommodate changes in temperature. This eTrail also includes suggested nearby attractions, camping & lodging, restaurants, and local outdoor retailers.
