Orick - (3.5 miles; Loop) - Hope Creek / Ten Taypo TrailNewton B. Drury Scenic Highway
Orick, California 95555
The Hope Creek / Ten Taypo Trail Loop is a peaceful hike that takes visitors along a well manicured path through beautiful redwoods in a tranquil setting right off the road. Because the very popular Ossagon Trailhead is right across the street, this trail is often overlooked and offers people a great chance to explore a low-trafficked area. We really enjoyed this hike on a sunny Humboldt afternoon and think you will too.
