From Big Tree take Prairie Creek trail which will lead back to visitor center, it also has unique tree tunnels where you can take beautiful pictures. This hike took approx 1 and half hour.

Content: This is perfect place in California to enjoy sunset. It took a while to drive up due to winding road, but definitely worth it. You can sit on the cliff edge and watch the waves crash onto the rocks below while the sun sets and the sky fills with beautiful shades of pink and orange. We packed our dinner along to enjoy this ideal picnic spot. There are picnic tables, wood fire grills and bathrooms.

Content: To finish up the Redwoods vacation we stopped at Damnation Creek Trail. This is short but difficult trail which leads to rocky beach with tide pools to be explored. Take extra care and watch your steps as trail is slippery and very narrow. It was difficult to do with kids.
