Description
Robert Louis Stevenson Memorial Trail is a 1.2-mile one-way trail that leads from the parking lot on Highway 29 to the site of the bunkhouse at the Silverado Mine where Stevenson and his bride spent their honeymoon.  The trail switchbacks up the hillside through gorgeous Douglas Firs and Oak trees.  A short distance after the memorial marker the trail connects to the Mount St. Helena fire road and the trail to the summit for 3.8 miles.  As the trail is a fire road it is well graveled and smooth, however there is very little shade.  Once on top of the mountain there are trails leading to the north and south peaks for different vistas of Northern California.  The views of Mt. Shasta and Lassen to the north, the Sierra Nevada mountains to the east, Mt. Diablo and Tamalpais to the south, and the Pacific Ocean to the west are well work the hike, for a true top-of-the-world experience.
