Gwynn Creek/Cooks Ridge
June 12, 2003
The day was overcast, but the temperature perfect.
and Joe Neal hiked.
We began at Cape Perpetua Visitor Center and hiked down the coast
view trail (the tide pool trail veers right off this) and turned
inland at Gwynn Creek.
Ascending to Cooks Ridge we passed scenic tributaries and scattered
old growth spruce and fir.
The trail along the ridge changes from fern covered to open second
growth, then again to fern and spruce.
After finishing the hike we watched a tide pool video in the
Visitor Center — very good.
Danny, Jim F. and Dana stopped at Darlingtonia on the way home to
see the pitcher plants — worth the stop.
