Went here for a walk with my wife and as we hiked up a trail we heard a grunt, a sigh, and movement. Realized we had accidently came across a couple sleeping right next to the trail. Scared the heck out of us and we immediately left.

If you have a half hour or so to walk off a great lunch or dinner check this place out. Secluded and quiet when we visited. Some areas a little challenging but a beautiful little spot east of town. Wish we could have explored more but one of the party had a sore ankle and could not handle some of... More

This park isn't the easiest place to find. It is located in the housing part of Fort Bragg and you would never guess it is a park of such magnitude from the parking. It looks like a dead end rail with brick parking spaces, and you walk down a trail with houses on both sides. At first it seemed sketchy,... 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.

Lush forest, big tall redwoods, easy trails. Fort Bragg area had 16-24 mph winds all day. Heard about this secluded little area & decided to try it. Not so little, spent a good 1.5 hour wandering & one or two trails looked too rugged for me but the rest were easy for a gal with compromised knees. Bench's along the... More

It's not a flat park. Little trails send you up and down. Relatively easy, but surely not handicap accessible. We let our dogs run off leash, no one else was in the park. They would run ahead then turn around and wait for us to catch up. Bring bug spray. We didn't think about grabbing ours when we left our... More

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 saw a wonderful vegetation with beautiful flowers and it felt like a wilderness park far... More

We found this hidden spot on Trip Advisor. It was easy to locate and parking was fine. Only a few people & dogs in the park with us. We viewed the map of the park on line, and figured we could find the route we wanted to take. However, when we ventured down the hill, there were a few Y's,... More

This park is situated in a residential area, and it seems not many people know about it. I heard about it by geocaching while on my trip. It really is a nice place. It's definitely an escape form the touristy part of Fort Bragg. There were beautiful tall, shady trees aplenty. There were nice little creeks flowing and birds singing.... More
