Trailside at Garrapata

The hike begins with desert like conditions…
…that end at an ancient redwood forest.
Along the way there are seven streams to ford and…
poison oak to avoid.

On the way into a secluded redwood forest at Garrapata State Park, you have to ford seven streams and avoid poison oak, one of the few colorful plants remaining at this time of year. But the hike is always worth it, although checking for ticks is advised when done.
