This is a nice place to take a picnic. When you get to the meadow there are picnic tables and a beautiful open space full of green grass and beautiful wild flowers. Go in the spring. Its the best time to see it. Diring the summer they allow campers with horses to camp in the meadow. Very horse and dog friendly. But keep your dog on a leash so it doesnt roll around in cow patties which there are a lot of.

Some nice spots but not the most scenic. It's a fire trail. Convenient but Redwood is nicer. Definitely gets hot! Bring water.

Not worth the time if you plan to hike, especially in the summer when everything's extremely dry. There's no scenery, only worth hiking if you want a workout. I did see some people biking part of the trail, might be interesting if you want an easy beginner MTB trail.
