Coastal Trail Skunk Cabbage Section Professional Review and Guide
"A seldom-used section of the California Coastal Trail in Redwood National Park beckons hikers to explore a lush coastal forest and a usually deserted strip of sandy beach. The first part is a pleasant stroll through lush forest, highlighted in spring and early summer by a profusion of blooming skunk cabbage. Beyond, the trail climbs stiffly up a coastal bluff and then plunges downhill just as steeply to a scenic and oftentimes empty beach that is more than enough reward. If you would like to make shuttle arrangements, you could park a second car along Davison Road near where it meets the beach (north of the featured trail)."
