Forest History Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This circuit through the Jackson Demonstration State Forest offers an informative hike amid secondgrowth redwood forest if you have a copy of the Forest History Guide in hand. Divided into five sections, the trip offers historical glimpses into our relationship with redwoods. The guide, keyed to 47 trailside posts, can be obtained free from the Cal Fire office in Fort Bragg at 802 North Main Street (it is sometimes available at Mendocino Woodlands State Park). Without the guide to pique your interest, the nearly 4-mile hike through logged redwood forest is rather mundane."
