The Coastal Redwoods in Northern California are some of the tallest and oldest trees in the world. We discovered a five mile walk just east of Crescent City that led us through a dense forest where redwood giants soared high above us.
A free shuttle from the Chiricahua Visitor Center provides hikers transportation to the top of the Echo Canyon Trailhead. Sign-up is required prior to the 9:00 a.m. departure, so a little advanced planning is necessary…but you won’t regret it! Once at the top, the 4.2 mile (mostly downhill) trail winds through spectacular rock formations, many of which seem to defy gravity.
