    The parking lot for our trailhead off of Empire Road is EXTREMELY small. If all 23 people drove separately, there will NOT be enough parking lots for our group--let alone spots for others not from our group who may also go tomorrow. Therefore, might I suggest we group at a very nearby Safeway on the way there and form carpools for the last 0.4 miles to the trailhead. Safeway
    6255 Graham Hill Rd, Felton, CA It's located in the Felton Fair Shopping Center. ‎

    Hi Tom,
    Can you confirm an address to meet? The address above and one in Jeff's comment are 2 miles apart... This is my 1st hike with your group so just making sure I don't get lost. :-) Thanks!

      The address is the one Jeff posted. It's on Felton Empire Road, NOT the 101 North Big Tree Park Rd, Felton. That address is for Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park proper. We're going to the Fall Creek Unit.

    Unfortunately, I won't make it tomorrow. Enjoy the trails.

    July 19, 2013

  • Jeff

    Where are we meeting exactly? "101 North Big Trees Park Rd, Felton" or "Fall Creek parking lot / trail head (off Felton Empire Road)"?

    If the latter, can you post a link to google maps with exact location, or at least an address?
