This park is amazing for several reasons...although it is in a city, it feels like a wilderness park...when one is down in the park, one does not feel like there is a city a few hundred yards away. The trees are amazing...although this area had been cut over years ago (probably 100-130 years ago), the trees have regenerated with a... More

This is no flat park. This is a downward trail through the beautiful redwoods, then you can head back up in several directions. You've got to be able to climb stairs or you'll get to the bottom and have very little to explore. Still, it was a sweet afternoon with a picnic lunch.

Tall trees, a quiet brook, short steep trail?? Who knew these are within easy walking distance from beautiful, downtown Fort Bragg?? About 5-6 short blocks east of Highway 1, this park is a quiet oasis. We've been to Fort Bragg many times and have toured around with friends who have spend a week each summer here for at least 20...

This is a really nice little park. It's basically a few hundred feet long stretch of a creek and the creek is running in a little canyon, so you have to take the trail and walk down. Once you get to the bottom, you're totally isolated from anything reminding you of the busy town life - you can't see or... More

This beautiful park has entrances on Cedar Street and at the end of Laurel Street, and was recently restored with new trails, better walking paths, removal of invasive species, new benches and trash cans, and trails to overlook Pudding Creek with loads of wildlife thriving. Very peaceful and beautiful, big trees and its 75 years old!

The park was little, and the trails were not always defined, but it was very pleasant. It was a great little hike.

Otis Johnson is not a large park, so you can walk all the trails fairly easily. We were there in January and it was raining so it was cold and the ground was slippery in places, but it was worth it. You walk through a beautiful redwood grove next to a small creek. Actually two creeks join together inside the... More

We found this little park near where we were staying in Fort Bragg and fell in love with it. It's very small, but truly lovely. It has a little stream, beautiful redwoods, some amazing staircases built into the hill, and picnic tables too. It's definitely worth a look-see. Plan on taking a short hike, and bring your lunch!
