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.
