This place is so cool! A good place to come back to year-round to see the different stages of growth and bloom of the carnivorous plants. Feels secluded even though it is right off the parking lot.

Quick way to explore some interesting aspects of nature at the coast. Nice easy boardwalk to see the flora and fauna!

A well-kept boardwalk takes you on a short visit in the woods to beds of Darlingtonia Japonica carnivorous plants. Very relaxing and educational stop (with restrooms) to break your coast journey.

This is such a great opportunity to view a plant not commonly seen. If you catch it right in the spring you can see the blooms too. Year round interest - even in winter or the heat of the summer watching how they survive is...More

This is a short detour off of Highway 101, perhaps 1/4 mile at most; then it's a short walking loop of perhaps two hundred yards. The pitcher plants, or cobra lilies, are something out of twilight zone. Helpful information for understanding the plants is posted.
