Take Pipeline road, a paved fireroad, from the parking lot along the river and up a steep hill for about a mile. Continue down the hill some until you get to Powder Mill fireroad. Turn left and go up hill until the campground, take another left up Fire Ridge Road to the observation deck for a killer view down to the ocean. Continue down the hill, unfortunately it's a big sand trap for the next half mile. Once Ridge Road crosses Pipeline you get into a sweet forested section. At the next junction go left to the river or right down some steep sections back to Pipeline road. Nothing technical here, just a great workout in beautiful redwoods.
