Vacation Day 5: Hidden Beach & Tide Pools

Not only is this beach hidden from sight until you are standing on it, but the trail to get to it is also very obscure. We were extremely lucky to find it. Photobucket

After hiking to the end of the trail we found that we had Hidden Beach all to ourselves. What a gem! This was one of our favorite excursions of the trip.

Next we drove through Jedidiah Smith State Park on a one lane road so narrow that it sometimes felt like the side mirrors of the car were going to scrape the bark off the trees. In places the road had a dark, mysterious feel to it which added to the ambiance.

While at J.S. Park we hiked a little trail down to the Smith River where we got a great view of the Redwood trees.

Later that same day we hiked a charming trail in Redwood National Park called the Brown Creek Trail.

Our last stop of the day was to visit some tide pools at low tide.
