The trail is good. you start walking along side the flowing water, all the way till the end of the Fall creek trail and there are some parallel paths which are like really close to the water. and after this soothing warm up you start climbing up till the Big Ben tree. and then it's all down hill ;p
It took me about 4 and half hrs and I stopped only twice: omce for a drink of smoothie and second time for catching my breathe at the big Ben tree.

Great trail 15-20 min outside of Santa Cruz, and was a great way to spend the afternoon. Beautiful hike through the redwoods next to the creek!

Amazeing hike! Would reccomend it to all my outdoor lovers. Scenery is breath takeing-feels like a Jurassic Park scene. Lol. Did the whole loop up to Big Ben and down in 4hrs-8.6miles-we stopped several times for pictures and snacks. Great day hike to get ur blood pumping. Pretty easy terrain untill you get to the end of Fall Creek trail and go UP towards big ben tree. But worth every step! We will be back.

Solitude. The creek was beautiful. I was surprised how much water was running given it's summer. There are also some cool historical sites, and well beautiful Redwoods. Will definitely be returning again.

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.
