Purisima Creek Redwoods

Last weekend I did a 7 mile hike in Purisima Creek Redwoods. It's almost across the street (CA 1) from Half Moon Bay Beach. It's quite nice. You get to see the Ocean at times while hiking.

I did the Purisima Creek - Soda Gulch - Harkin's Ridge loop. Mind you, the last bit of Harkin's trail is very steep, although it's wide enough to be a Biking trail and it probably is. It might be good fun to ride a bike downhill. We had to hike downhill. It would've been quite tough had we come the other way around.

You might also find a Quail nest where Harkin's Ridge and Soda Gulch intersect. Be careful not to disturb the birds though!
