Purisima Creek Redwoods, 7/31/11

Started at about 8:30am from the North Ridge Trailhead Parking lot; ended at about 1:30. 9.9 mile loop: North Ridge Trail, Whittemore Gulch Trail, Prisima Creek Trail, Craig Britton Trail, Harkins Ridge Trail, North Ridge Trail.
North Ridge trail offered the most interesting scenery; lots of moss, vegetation, and fog.

Large parking lot. This was what it looked like when we finished our hike. There were only a handful of cars when we started in the morning.
