James Irvine Trail to Fern Canyon

Redwood National and State Parks

The James Irvine Trail runs 5.05 miles from Prairie Creek Visitor Center to the Fern Canyon Loop in Redwood National Park. This popular trail is topped by a 300'+ canopy and some of the world's oldest redwoods. Sitka spruce, red alder and bigleaf maple appear as you transition to a coastal forest ecosystem on the descent to Fern Canyon, a steep-walled slot that supports a unique microhabitat at the mouth of Home Creek near Gold Bluffs Beach.
