            HIKING

    Fern Canyon – Easy to moderate hike in a “prehistoric” canyon. Access note:  Access to Fern Canyon is via Davison Road, an unpaved dirt road with size restrictions. No RVs! Enquire locally in winter as road may be impassable due to mud and high water. Road is very rough in spots. Approx 7 miles from Hwy 101 to Fern Canyon.
