Fern Canyon is located in the Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park. This spot offers hiking into a box-shaped canyon with fern-covered walls up to 80 ft. high. The prehistoric feel offered by the dense fern cover led the makers of Jurassic Park to film scenes here. An easy hike through the canyon and up a nearby ridge offers spectacular views of the canyon below.
Prairie Creek offers hiking, nature study, wildlife viewing, beach combing, picnicking, a visitor center with exhibits and a nature store.
