Not found by many but much appreciated by locals, this little north-facing valley has been carefully preserved by Fort Bragg's city mothers and fathers for a century. A mile east of the town center and hidden by the school bus barn, but for a brief...More

It's a sweet little forest with redwoods, ravines, and various bridges over the creek which goes into Pudding Creek. Nice to climb around, but there's also wide trails with stairs for relaxed enjoyment.

Nice walk after a day in the car. Needed something to do for half an hour of so. Plus, geocaching was possible there.

The park is at the end of Laurel Street almost in the middle of Fort Bragg. We've been there early in the morning and could walk around the interesting small trails all alone. It goes up and down, but always good for most hikers. We...More
