 October 2017 

 

The Missing Arm
October  21, 2017  (6:30 PM – 9:00 PM)
Big Basin Redwoods State Park, Headquarters
A slightly spooky walk in the forest!

Join us on a 1-hour, 1/2-mile, silly and slightly haunting night hike through the deep, dark forest and hear the haunted tale of Big Basin’s last lumber mill owner and his disastrous encounter with a grizzly bear!
Registration starts at 6:30 p.m. Tours leave every 15 minutes.

This story is in the spirit of ghost stories told around a campfire, but it’s not too spooky for children. Day use visitors must pay the $10.00 parking fee. There is no charge for the tour.
For questions, call – (831) 338-8883
