Fern Falls

Fern Falls Professional Review and Guide

"Ramble through a stunning old-growth redwood forest to a small, perennial waterfall on Jordan Creek. From the second you set out on the Boy Scout Tree Trail, you will be enchanted. Lit by the slanting rays of a midwinter sun, the furrowed bark of the massive redwoods along-side the trail shimmers gray and green.

Touch the bark: It feels light and alive, its pores open to the mist and the filtered sunshine. Yes, the term “magical” is overused in the voluminous literature praising California’s redwoods, but really, there’s no more accurate way to describe the old-growth forests of the North Coast. And this one is quintessential."
