CALIFORNIA: Hiking in Jurassic Park

Fern Canyon is a beautiful hiking destination in Orick, California. This spot is something that must be seen in person to truly appreciate, as photos barely do any justice to it's true nature. As the name implies, this place consists of 50-foot high walls covered in ferns. This location appears prehistoric, and was in fact used as a filming location for The Lost World: Jurassic Park, along with several other dinosaur films!

Prepare for flooding along this hike. It's a short trail but well worth it for a unique destination. In terms of wildlife, we spotted many Roosevelt elk on our drive into the hiking area. The drive into the hiking area is also rather incredible - twists and curves down a dirt road lead you through a forest that looks much like Endor.
