We hiked the Rhododendron state reserve in March, so the rhododendrons weren't in bloom. May is supposed to be the best time to see the blooms. I did see rhododendron plants in profusion, so I can only imagine how gorgeous this hike will be when they are in bloom.
This is a easy hike, some uphill walking. The misty redwoods and damp ferns create a very relaxing and peaceful atmosphere.
