Peavine Ridge is a long but not very strenuous hike that takes you through some of the park’s prettiest backcountry forest. It begins with an easy stroll through old-growth redwood forest along the edge of Bull Creek valley, then climbs through mixed forest and prairie to Peavine Ridge with a few brief views along the way. The ascent is mostly gradual, with only a couple of short, steep sections. The forest on the ridge-top is magnificent, with some very impressive redwoods, Douglas-firs, tanoaks, and madrones. The descent is rather steep and passes through a large, post-burn prairie complex.
