    Wonderful hike on beautiful trails! Of all the hikes I've been on so far, I think this is the prettiest, with all the lush greenery, ferns, and wildflowers. With so many Redwood trees throughout the park, it's like being up North at Humboldt without having to travel very far to enjoy that same kind of scenery and hiking experience. Enjoyed meeting several new people. Having a picnic at the end of the hike was a great idea! All of the food that everyone brought was delicious! Thank you to Chris, Paul, and Kirk for organizing this hike. Kirk, the chalk-marking you did on the trails was so helpful and kept us from getting on the wrong trail!

      Hi Sharon-would love to ride with you and chip in for gas if you still have room. Are you close to WC Park and Ride or should I meet you at your house? I'm coming from Concord. Heading out in a bit but will check back later or tomorrow early. And with the weather as nice as it's going to be the lot will be full all day, but there is parking up and down Redwood.
