This short trail leads through Fern Canyon Preserve and features majestic Monterey pines, oaks, ferns and a seasonal creek. The trail crosses Fern Drive and dead ends in a chaparral near Highway 1. The trail is approximately 3/4 miles each way. This is an easy hike.
Return to Highway 1 going south, turn right onto Burton Drive then turn right onto Fern Drive. Follow Fern Drive to the bottom of Fern Canyon. There is a marker for the beginning of the trail on the left, 1 mile from the Santa Rosa Creek Trail.
