A short spur trail leads into Redwood Canyon, a re- mote side canyon with clusters of towering redwoods. The loop hike returns on a cliffside path above Garzas Canyon." Read more

Nice views on a beautiful day. There have been some landslides in places, so be careful, especially in the forested areas.
