"The Browns Creek Loop, which offers plenty of diversity in 3.6 miles, is one of the better routes in Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park. After an easy stroll through pleasant forest, the South Fork Trail climbs into a serene upland forest to meet the Rhododendron Trail. A pleasant descent then continues through upland redwoods past numerous showy rhododendrons, which are in full bloom in late spring. When you reach Brown Creek, the namesake trail heads downstream and visits some magnificent old-growth redwoods. Separated by a ridge from Newton B. Drury Parkway, the trail is not plagued by the sounds of automobile traffic. You are more apt to hear the ocean from its upper elevations than any man-made noise." Read more
