Russian Gulch Loop Professional Review and Guide
"Easy access from CA 1 and a straightforward hike along a wide, gently graded road combine to make the well-named Fern Canyon Trail in Russian Gulch State Park quite popular. The first 1.5 miles receive plenty of use from bicyclists, families with strollers, and wheelchair users, as well as bipeds interested in an easy stroll alongside a placid stream. The trail courses through a canyon carpeted with lush vegetation, including a second-growth redwood forest."
