Prairie Creek Trails

Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park is home to the second largest remaining stand of uncut, old growth redwood forest left in the world.

Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park has over 70 miles of trails to explore.  These trails vary greatly in distance and difficulty.

The park has two wheelchair accessible routes through old growth redwood. The Revelation Trail is a ¼ mile interpretive accessible loop right behind the Prairie Creek visitor center.  The 2 mile Prairie Creek / Foothill loop also starts at the visitor center.

Two of the more challenging hikes are The James Irvine Trail and The Rhododendron Trail.  The James Irvine is a 10 mile traverse through old growth forest, Fern Canyon, (hikers can continue west to the Pacific Ocean) then back again.   The Rhododendron / Brown Creek / Foothill loop is a magnificent hike that ascends over 1000 feet.   .

Make sure and stop by the Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park Visitor Center and talk to the knowledgeable staff that will help you find the perfect trail to explore.
