Portola Redwoods State Park
by Bay Nature Staff on July 08, 2012
Enjoy the solitude of lush redwood groves and the joyful sounds of waterfalls at this secluded park.
At the end of a steep and winding road awaits the peaceful respite of Portola Redwoods’ forested slopes. Eighteen miles of trails lead hikers through the trees and along the creeks on hikes ranging from a short and easy self-guided nature loop to a challenging 13-mile traverse to a grove of old-growth redwoods–with many other hike options between those two extremes. The park also offers 52 regular campsites and four walk-in sites. Portola Redwoods is on the state parks closure list (planned for implementation by July 2012), so visit it now, while you can!
