This community forest its right next to Humboldt State University. I like that is pet friendly but the downside is that you have to watch out for dog poop! This forest has some gorgeous views and i also found a banana slug
What can be said about the most incredible forests in the World? You have to experience this - the coastal Sequoia redwood forests have 5 times the bio mass of the next closest forests in the World per sq'. Well tenured paths and friendly dog walkers and trekkers. Also, this forest gets highest marks for conservation and how they care... 更多
Who knew there was a Redwood forest right in the town of Arcata. We went way north to visit some of the forests and parks. Our last day we didn't want to travel far so we found the community forest. It was beautiful!! We walked the path for a while and really enjoyed the afternoon.
Main entrance was closed so we parked on the street and took the hiking trail. Half way on our hike my daughter stepped in dog poop that seemed to be everywhere on the trail. Other than the poop issue was a good hike and playground was nice.
Even though the trees here are not as huge as the other areas they are still no less amazing! The area is great for a hike or short walk, and the air is so fresh and clean that it is invigorating!
Beautiful forest. Easy to park at the HSU campus Redwood Sciences Laboratory, where the frisbee golf course starts. We met a nice guy there who threw a few holes with us; seems like a popular course with the locals.
We hiked about 5 miles of the trails here. There are several and you could get easily lost if you do not know your way around (we used our all trails map app). But overall good hike, close to town and dog friendly.
Arcata Community Forest is a beautiful place to ride or hike. It's multi-use trails work well for horses, bicycles, and hikers. The surroundings are incredible. The fairly large number of trails allow for short or long walks/rides. I have been riding in the forest many times and never tire of going there. It's one of my favorite places.
Lovely "younger" redwoods in a large urban setting. Stop and take a picture of the map for the trails, there are no paper one's available. Most, but not all, of the trails are marked. We spent many hours and 8 miles enjoying the community forest.
