The Prairie Central Trail–South Trail Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Central Trail and South Trail are located in the heart of Salt Point State Park, forming a large loop through a dense conifer forest to the crest of the coastal ridge. The trails are fire roads that climb up the slope from Woodside Campground on Highway 1. At the ridge is The Prairie, a vast grassland meadow frequented by deer and hawks. The wooded, atmospheric route meanders under towering second-growth redwoods, Douglas fir, and bishop pines, with an understory of ferns, salal, huckleberry, rhododendrons, and manzanita. Early morning fog often settles in along the coastal end of the loop."
