Area Status: Open
This hiking trail, which starts on the Oregon Redwoods Barrier Free Trail #1106 along Peavine Ridge in the Winchuck River drainage, loops down to the west into upper Moser Creek drainage to access a grove of majestic old-growth redwood trees. Interpretive panels discuss forest ecology, redwood life cycle, fire history, wildlife and botany.
Redwood trees found on the Chetco Ranger District represent the only coast redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens) found in the Pacific Northwest Region, located at the limit of their northern range. The trail is a moderately challenging day-hike opportunity which, when combined with the Oregon Redwoods Trial #1106, provides a loop.
Although this portion of the Oregon Redwood trail is not accessible, the shared trailhead facilities with Oregon Redwoods Barrier-Free Trail are wheelchair accessible.
