Portola Redwoods State Park, La Honda Reviews
Loved the fresh air on this shady hike. There's a few different trails here and a couple of the bridges are seasonal, so you'll have to go roundabout ways if you don't want your shoes to get wet (in winter). There were so many red-bellied newts on the trails that I was paranoid of where I was stepping. Accidentally stepped on one anyway :( they're camoflaged. Also spotted a few banana slugs. It's not a crowded place to go and the park office is also a nature center/gift shop. You have to pay for day-use parking there. There's no cell phone service so the park office is a good place to meet if you have friends driving separately.
The drive there was fun! The park was nice, I really liked the visitor's center, but there are other parks in the area that are prsttier.
Initially planned to take the Coyote Ridge Trail but found that it was closed. So, we headed for the Slate Creek Trail. The trail is totally covered with trees and this is a backpacking route. The trail looked like ideal for summer hikes. There are some campsites couple of miles inside the trail. The campsites didn't seem to have any fireplace. There is a bathroom inside. At night it surely gets pretty dark out here for the campers as it is all covered with tall trees. You will come across a lot of narrow paths, redwoods, banana slugs, insects along with LOTS of mosquitoes(which were becoming annoying at times).
PROS: The campsites were nice, but if you're a tent camper I noticed many of the sites lacked level areas. The forest was beautiful and it was a relaxing place to spend a few days. If your forecast calls for windy weather, you probably won't see too many mosquitoes. CONS: The bathrooms were not good. I camp a lot and my expectations aren't high. But the bathrooms weren't cleaned during our 3 days there and almost all were without toilet paper until the day we left. What made this even worse was that when we visited the visitor center there were 2 park workers sitting on computers. Other cons include the curvy (although scenic) drive and the disappointing center piece of Tiptoe Falls. Generally, I would give Portola Redwoods another chance because the forest is beautiful and relaxing. Hence, 3 stars.
A great place to camp or just for the day. The redwood Grove is a great place to hike too.🐻
