[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

This is a flat, short loop trail that is ideal for all family members and skill levels. It was dedicated in 1969 to Lady Bird Johnson in recognition of her environmental. The trail features redwoods, wildflowers, bird watching, and a self-guided tour.  This trail is quite popular, plan to arrive early to ensure available parking.

From the parking lot, cross over Bald Hills Road on the bridge. The trail will climb gently through the trees and lush understory.  You’ll soon arrive at the dedication site, marked with a plaque and benches. Past there, you’ll descend to the intersection with Berry Glen Trail where you’ll find some of the larger redwoods. Past the intersection, you will return along the east side of the ridge. Follow the trail to the left to return to the parking lot.

Being outside is how I re-charge. It gives me perspective, fills me with gratitude and provides an opportunity to disconnect from the chaos of everyday life. I am fortunate to share this passion with my amazing husband and our son.  I was born and raised in the PNW but I love exploring any area I can get to. One of my favorite things about Hike it Baby is that I have a built in community of friends to provide trail suggestions anywhere we go.
