Ridges, Redwoods and Streams Hike

Your choice of two hikes in EBRPD Redwood Regional Park,
a Moderate 6.7 mile, 900 ft. ele. or
a Challenging 8.9 mile, 1800 ft. ele.

We Start from the Wayside lot, heading up Canyon and East Ridge Trails to the Skyline Gate, where the two hikes split up.

The short hike descends on Stream Trail, optionally stopping to snack at Trails end.

The longer hike will take West Ridge, French, Starflower, Madrone, French, and Chown Trails to Stream Trail and Trails End for their snack break.

Both hikes continue along Stream Trail back to the Staging Area.
