Great mostly shaded trail which eventually leads you alongside a creek. There was even a mini waterfall along the way. Keep your ears open for mountain bikers. I really enjoyed ending it with a climb up the Chapparal Trail, which included step-like ascension.
this is a part of a great trail system in the JM park. I'd suggest you get a very good map, or gps on your phone. We did this trail but through a few, unintentional detours (big trees/sequoia bay view trails etc), ended up adding several more trails/miles to the hike. It's gorgeous, the redwoods are great, the view of the bay at sunset was amazing. We even chanced on a wedding by the Big Trees trail. All in all about 6-7 miles (meant to do 3.5), so YOU can customize as you wish.
