Ossagon Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"The Ossagon Trail offers a variety of scenery over the course of only a couple of miles. Beginning in impressive old-growth redwood forest, the route drops through second-growth forest on the way toward the coast, crossing lushly lined Ossagon Creek twice on the way. A herd of elk can often be seen near the mouth of the creek. Just beyond is a stretch of secluded beach accented by a cluster of dramatic-looking rocks. Although the trail is relatively short, make sure you save enough energy for the mostly uphill trip back to the car."
