_____________

The Ewoldsen loop hike starts right by the parking. After a few minutes you reach an area with some picnic tables.


The first part of the hike is flat and runs through the impressive redwood trees. After a couple of hundred metres the trail windles up through a canyon. It is an easy climb.

After a few kilometres along the trail you reach a bridge and the trail divides in two. You can follow either one since it is a loop. Following the path takes you up above the redwood trees with beautiful views of the Pacific ocean.

After coming back down to the parking, cross the Highway 1 and take a look at the McWay Falls.


You can also walk all the way down to the ocean.
