Nice walk

Nice walk after a day in the car. Needed something to do for half an hour of so. Plus, geocaching was possible there.

Lush forest, big tall redwoods, easy trails. Fort Bragg area had 16-24 mph winds all day. Heard about this secluded little area & decided to try it. Not so little, spent a good 1.5 hour wandering & one or two trails looked too rugged for me but the rest were easy for a gal with compromised knees. Bench's along the... More

It's not a flat park. Little trails send you up and down. Relatively easy, but surely not handicap accessible. We let our dogs run off leash, no one else was in the park. They would run ahead then turn around and wait for us to catch up. Bring bug spray. We didn't think about grabbing ours when we left our... More

The park is at the end of Laurel Street almost in the middle of Fort Bragg. We've been there early in the morning and could walk around the interesting small trails all alone. It goes up and down, but always good for most hikers. We saw a wonderful vegetation with beautiful flowers and it felt like a wilderness park far... More

We found this hidden spot on Trip Advisor. It was easy to locate and parking was fine. Only a few people & dogs in the park with us. We viewed the map of the park on line, and figured we could find the route we wanted to take. However, when we ventured down the hill, there were a few Y's,... More

This park is situated in a residential area, and it seems not many people know about it. I heard about it by geocaching while on my trip. It really is a nice place. It's definitely an escape form the touristy part of Fort Bragg. There were beautiful tall, shady trees aplenty. There were nice little creeks flowing and birds singing.... More

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
