Oregon Redwoods Trail #1106

Area Status: Open
This area is Open
 

The Oregon Redwoods Trail is an interpretive trail located along Peavine Ridge in the Winchuck River drainage, and provides a unique barrier-free day-use hiking/wheelchair opportunity through a grove of majestic old-growth redwood trees. (The trail is barrier-free owing to having a wide travel-way, acceptable grades and crushed aggregate tread surfacing.) Interpretive panels provide information on old-growth trees and their ecology, fire history, wildlife viewing, 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 an out-and-back design with a short loop at the far end, where a picnic stop is provided. A short wooden deck provides access to the inside of a hollowed redwood tree.
