About the Event
Join Saved By Nature, Latino Outdoors and California State Parks for an inclusive nature hike through a majestic old-growth redwood forest at California's oldest State Park, Big Basin Redwoods!
We'll hike a 4-mile loop on the Sequoia and Skyline to the Sea trails. The route leads to a platform overlooking exquisite Sempervirens Falls, then up the broad slope of Slippery Rock to a junction with the Skyline to the Sea Trail. This stretch of Skyline to the Sea passes the site of a pioneer family cabin in the skyscraping redwood forest along Opal Creek (CASP).
About 5% of our original coast redwood range still exist. The Santa Cruz Mountains' vicinity to the Pacific Ocean creates a fog belt and climate that provides crucial moisture needed to sustain these trees. Big Basins' rugged location made it difficult for loggers to harvest all ancient redwoods, so we get a rare opportunity to see these incredible giants at their best. Where some may have been standing for thousands of years.
Please bring a lunch, water, sturdy hiking shoes/boots, hat and/or sunblock.
This hike was made possible through a partnership with The Santa Cruz District of CA State Parks, Saved By Nature and Latino Outdoors.
