Can you walk to Redwoods RV Resort
Yes you could hike from the Resort to Henry Cowell Park. Once at the Park there a # of hiking trails as well. I can only give you the directions provided which is still a nice walk. You could also explore any trail area you come across once you make the turn towards the park. I hope this helps but this is the directions for hiking to the park. 20 min (1.0 mi) via Hwy 9 and N Big Trees Park Rd Directions Fern River Resort Head west on Hwy 9 toward Macarthur Rd 0.5 mi Turn right onto N Big Trees Park Rd 0.5 mi Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park Ranger Office and Entrance Station, 101 North Big Trees Park Road, Felton, CA 95018

"We loved #3 as it was away from the others."
"Bring food to grill out, each cabin has it's own outdoor grill."
"Cabin 9 is right on the river."
"4 and 8 although all are good. 4 and 8 have the best river views, according to the staff."
"#3 & #4 seem very private and overlook the river."
