One of my East Bay favorites
The French Trail is my favorite trail in Redwood and I've done it many times in conjunction with all the other trails. I like to combine it with the Stream Trail because of the larger trees but it's good with the East Or West Trail as well. The French Trail has a lot less traffic than most of the others because it's a little more difficult and if I remember right, no bikes. I miss hiking Redwood....
