Steep Ravine Trail to Pantoll Ranger Station - 1.7 miles. Dipsea trail to Stinson Beach 1.4 Miles.
Follow Steep Ravine upstream. The trail will follow up the canyon just above the stream, crossing frequently in a quest to actually find a place to put it.
The canyon rapidly generates that primal feel that only a Redwood forest has. The floor vegetation grows everywhere where there isn't bare rock. The ferns were particularly lush.
