"Calming, cooling redwood groves shade much of this long loop. A uniquely north-coast phenomenon, the redwoods weave a lofty canopy that filters and softens even the harshest summer sun. Redwoods dominate the landscape of the Crystal Springs Trail through Huddart County Park. The sequoias overwhelm all other trees that attempt to grow within the boundaries of their groves, leaving room only for moss, ferns, and the occasional toyon or huckleberry. Their fragrant discarded needles form a thick, soft padding on the trail bed. Oak woodlands creep in between the redwood groves— a more diverse community that includes various oaks, madrone, manzanita, and a wealth of wildflowers in spring." Read more
