The fourth park we visited was Russian Gulch State Park for a Saturday morning run. We took the Fern Canyon Trail and then the Waterfall Loop Trail to a beautiful 36 foot tall waterfall in a very lush setting. We then continued to the North Boundary Trail where we saw an area of famous pygmy pine forest where mature, full size trees only reach six feet tall! Total mileage was about 6.5 miles. Be sure to check out the complete web album.
Later on that day we visited the headlands portion of Russian Gulch to see the Blow Hole and the iconic Fredrick W. Panhorst bridge.
