Spectacular, after the big rain waterfalls were rockin. In the canopy of the big trees then pop out into one of the most spectacular views around. Great time.

This trail feels like such an adventure. The flowing creek is ice cold and feels so nice to splash around in a bit. It's definitely a bit of a work out, but the beauty of the trees and the ocean makes it so worth it. Would definitely recommend this :)

Nice cardio. If you want to save your knee, go up from the steep ravine trail. Water level is super low but it is a good hike. The signs are very confusing to get to that trail. I will go back there again.

This is one of the best hikes we've ever done. It rivaled our favorite hike of Killarney in Ireland. This trail has ever-changing landscapes, and while we had a cloudy day that masked some of our views, the fog added to the mystique and beauty of the woods.

At the loop, we decided to go up the Steep Ravine trail and down the Dipsea trail. I recommend this route because the Steep Ravine trail is steeper and therefore more difficult for descent.

We started around 9:15am and finished at 12:15pm. We probably passed a total of 15-20 people on the trail.
