Hike 11: Skunk Cabbage

Skunk Cabbage Trail

Skunk Cabbage Trail

The Skunk Cabbage section of the California Coastal Trail offers a nice mix of forest and beach walking. The first two miles follow Skunk Cabbage Creek through mixed redwood, spruce, and hemlock with little elevation change. The low-lying areas support large patches of the trail’s namesake. The trail then crosses a ridge and descends to an invariably deserted beach.
