Moderate 11-mile (18-km) round trip hike through varied environments. This trail follows an old trail used by gold miners in the 1800s. James Irvine is relatively flat, passes through spectacular old-growth redwood forests, crosses creeks, and ends at the 30-foot walls of Fern Canyon. Continue along Coastal Trail at Gold Bluffs Beach and pick up Miners Ridge. This trail follows a ridgeline that allows the heart to pump. Backpacking is possible with a stay at the Miners Ridge camp. Bring your own water.
