The hike will take place in a redwood forest, mostly on the Stream Trail and French Trail. It will begin at the Fishway area, which can be reached by entering the park at the Redwood Gate, and parking in the first lot on the left after the Fishway interpretive site. After parking, walk back to the Fishway area, where we will meet.
