Damnation Creek Trail

Crescent City, California

Damnation Creek Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This hike follows a steep but very scenic trail, which offers the best of old-growth redwoods and rugged coastline. In spring, the trail is sprinkled with a variety of wildflowers—most notably the distinctive three-leafed trillium, a showy native flower with white and pink blossoms. The trail ends at a beach next to a small, natural rock arch, carved by waves. Excellent tide pools can be explored at low tide. Terrain: Dirt path and asphalt road (closed to cars) through old-growth redwoods and coastal scrub, as well as along rocky beach."

Quite the rain storm came through during our hike, the trail got a little muddy in areas, and there were some slippery areas.

Good trail, 1 redwood downfall to climb over and several partially washed out sections near the bottom, but not dangerous.
