Oregon Redwoods Trail #1107

  

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. Interpretation, which will discuss forest ecology, redwood life cycle, fire history, wildlife and botany, will be installed at the trailhead and along the connecting Oregon Redwoods Barrier Free Trail #1106.

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 Trail - Barrier Free provides a loop.

Although this trail is not accessible, the shared trailhead facilities with Oregon Redwoods Barrier Free Trail are wheelchair accessible.
