Redwood Gulch is home to one of California’s southernmost groves of coastal redwoods. The gulch is a narrow, eroded gorge with chutes of cascading water, small waterfalls, and a myriad of tub-size pools surrounded by huge boulders. This short trail begins at the creek bottom amidst the lush streamside vegetation and climbs through the dank, damp, atmospheric terrain beneath a magnificent stand of imposing redwoods. The site was named for Nathaniel and Margaret Owings, early conservationists that worked to protect Big Sur’s coastline from development.
