Sequoia Nature Trail
This easy 1.5-mile loop under the shade of redwoods along Pescadero Creek has interpretive signs that offer information about the surroundings making it a great option for curious minds and families with small children. The trail begins near the Visitors Center and typically takes less than an hour. The footbridge crossing the creek is removed during the winter due to larger water flows.
Tip Toe Falls
An easy hike 1.6-mile out and back on Iverson Trail, which connects to Sequoia Nature Trail, climbs to Tip Toe Falls, a 6-foot waterfall fed by Fall Creek which Sempervirens Fund is working to protect. Described by many hikers as magical, the fall tumbles over a mossy cliff into a circular pool. The roundtrip hike typically takes about two hours.
Peter’s Creek Trail
Peters Creek Trail is an 11.9-mile loop trail through lush redwood and tanoak forests. The long hike with two sections of climbing are rewarded by 1.5-miles through an awesome old-growth redwood grove. Sempervirens Fund preserved 33-acres next to the Peters Creek Trail for people and wildlife to enjoy forever.
