Quick Facts

Historical/Interpretive Information/Exhibits, Low-Vision Access, Tactile Exhibit, Trailhead, Wheelchair Accessible

A wheelchair accessible trail with enhancements for those with impaired vision.

This 1/4 mile long loop-trail is flat and is through some of the most beautiful, and easily accessible old-growth redwoods. Interpretive signs encourage the use of different senses to learn about and experience the redwoods.

The trailhead is located about 500 hundred yards (150m) south of the Prairie Creek Visitor Center. There is signage and ADA parking along the Elk Prairie Road. The trail has a short section of elevated walkways that wrap around some redwood trees. These platforms are wheelchair accessible. The middle section of the trail has ropes along the side to guide vision-impaired visitors through redwood groves.

There are numerous other short trails that go from the Revelation Trail. These trails head north to the Prairie Creek Visitor Center, west to a nature trail across Prairie Creek, and south to the Elk Prairie Picnic Area and Elk Prairie Campground.
