Among beautiful locations throughout the Redwood National Forest, Fern Canyon is definitely a must-see. You’ll be able to walk through a mile-long trail alongside Home Creek, where lush ferns and mosses coat the walls that were carved out many years ago. You may even hear the constant trickling of water down the vertical walls which moisten the water-loving plants and help them thrive. We recommend bringing waterproof boots or walking shoes with to help keep your feet dry.
