Pygmy Forest Ecological Staircase Hike

November 3 - November 12

Jug Handle State Park

Look carefully and you may see some mushrooms while hiking this unique trail, which is a small slice of five uplifted ocean terraces. On the beach, you are standing on today’s time. Climb to the bluff top and you've traveled back in time 100,000 years. Each terrace is approximately 100,000 years older, taking one back in time a half million years as one travels from the beach to the fifth terrace. Look for fun fungi along the way!  This free tour is self guided during seasonal park hours.
