The Rhododendron Trail between Brown Creek Trail and South Fork Trail is currently closed. This means the Brown Creek-Rhododendron-South Fork loop is not an option.
The year-round bridge over Bond Creek on the Redwood Creek Trail (~5 miles upstream from Redwood Creek Trailhead and ~2 miles downstream from Tall Trees Grove) is closed due to damage.
