The Pescadero Creek watershed is prime redwood country, part of a pristine system of forested ridges, hillsides, and valleys that stretches all the way to the Pacific Ocean. From the high rim of the creek’s remote canyon, you wind down on steep lonesome trails through oak stands and ancient Douglas-fir forests, in a blissful mixture of sun and shade, until you reach the magnificent grove of giant redwoods by the edge of the creek. The nearby campground is sheltered under old-growth redwoods high above the creek, peaceful and secluded.
