Route Description for Ossagon Trail
The Ossagon Trail would make a great addition to your adventure bucket list in northern California. Indulge in the quintessential redwood grove scenery and reward yourself with unparalleled maritime panoramas. Offering the best of both worlds and the opportunity to bike, this route cannot be beaten. Note that due to the area’s proximity to the coast, conditions are likely to be foggy, windy, or damp—so dress accordingly! Additionally, sections of the terrain are steep and single track, so take your time and be aware of passers-by.
Setting out from the trailhead, the Ossagon Trail will guide you northwest into the woodlands. Marvel in the lively vegetation and the grandeur of the towering redwoods as you begin your climb down to the coast. Navigating the odd switchback, the path will soon guide you over a charming footbridge atop of Ossagon Creek—which marks the final leg of your adventure. Gradually descending through the woodlands, the sound of crashing waves will intensify as you near the route’s end.
You will ultimately reach your turnaround point at the intersection with the California Coastal Trail. Explore the beach and rejuvenate your feet in the chilly waters if time permits. When you are set to return to the trailhead, simply backtrack along the path.
