This is such a beautiful trail. In the summer months the trail covered by trees stays cool, but the sunny parts get hot. Best hiked in the morning and make sure to layer. There are some steep parts of the trail when you do the loops.

Beautiful, our favorite in the area. Surrounded by trees, the filtered light and cooler temps make for a comfortable hike.

Unknown. Based on this app we brought our dog. There is a No Dogs sign clearly posted at the trail head. We left to hike elsewhere.

Great trail following the creek and staying cool under the redwood canopies.

Absolutely stunning. Beautiful hike through the redwoods to very cool historical sites and along fern covered Fall Creek. Hiked the 8.3 mile loop in about 3.5 miles.

Awesome Hike

This is a beautiful hike through the redwoods, with far fewer people than you will encounter at Henry Cowell. Note, however, that dogs are not allowed, even on a leash.

Awesome hike through redwoods, along a creek with points of historical interest scattered throughout (lime kilns, powder magazine, etc.). Very beautiful, some up and down, trails are well-marked. Watch out for rocks and tree roots! Hiking sticks are helpful. The distance for the trail route suggested by All Trails is incorrect; it's actually about 4 miles RT.

Beautiful hike that is mainly along the creek! 11 miles hike - fall creek trail to Lost Empire to Big Ben trail and end back on Fall Creek trail. Very little people on the trails so it's great to have all the park to yourselves.
