The Dolason Prairie Trail is far from the tourist crowds that plague redwood groves along U.S. Highway 101. Beginning high in the Bald Hills, the trail explores prairies that local Native American populations once maintained with fire, then descends through thick forests to the old-growth redwood groves along Emerald Creek. Brooding fog often envelopes the valley, but on clear days the prairies offer excellent views.
