Damnation Creek Trail
Trailhead: Milepost 16.0 on Hwy 101
Difficulty Level: Strenuous, numerous steep grades and switchbacks. Trail drops 1,000 feet (16 percent grade)
Experience the ancient redwood Forest
and the jagged Pacific coastline. This steep trail descends 1,000 feet (330 m) through the forest where canopy branches look like treetop arms holding thousand of plants. In the past, Tolowa Indians used the tidepools at the ocean for food gathering. Arrive at low tide and carefully make your way to the beach from the bluff. Remember our motto for tidepool creatures, observe but do not disturb.
