Fern Gully meets the Beach

This was an excellent hike! I would recommend taking the Steep Ravine Trail to Dipsea trail so that you're adventure ends at Stinson Beach! This trail was "easy" going out, relatively speaking since it was all downhill, but the way back was a challenge for sure! Just the right amount though. The ravine runs almost the entire way down the trail, so it's a constant beautiful view and the redwoods around there are of course lovely too. One suggestion, maybe bring a wallet/cash with you so that you can grab a snack or ice cream at the little cafe by the beach before turning around to finish the second half of the hike.
