BALD HILLS PRAIRIE AND SAVANNA TOUR

Few visitors to Redwood National Park expect to see prairies!  The less-visited higher elevations of the park differ dramatically from the lower ones.  As the elevation increases, the climate gets warmer and drier and redwoods give way to other evergreens and finally deciduous oak woodland and grassland.  The views are awesome and in some years the wildflower displays are spectacular!  Learn how the Native Americans and early white settlers, and more recently the Park Service, have shaped and managed this landscape.  This tour can include hikes to historic pioneer buildings.

Fern Canyon is an awesome sight.  This picturesque and primeval-looking setting, used in the filming of several movies, is a must-see part of Redwood National and State Parks.  Five species of ferns grow on its vertical walls.  Its waterfalls, meandering creek, and meadows are even more amazing when interpreted by one of our expert guides.  The full-day version of this tour can include hiking to or from the canyon on some of the parks’ many trails.  Except in summer, this tour includes some wading.
