A short loop option that explores the beauty of the botanic regional preserve. Start from the Skyline Blvd staging area and loop around on the Huckleberry trail.

Nice little short and easy hike almost completely in the shade. If you want to do longer hikes there are good connectors on both ends. Can be combined quite nicely with Redwood or Sibley. And huckleberries are pretty tasty...

Quite narrow, mostly shaded, not many spots for views, no views that impressive. Took the baby in the stroller, that was tough, won't do that again. Trail is really only wide enough for 1 person.

This trail was narrow, secluded and shaded in the woods. Hiking it during the weekdays would be less crowded.

Narrow paths, sometimes a little daunting where it's open to the downward side or where the path is slick. Wished I'd had on better shoes or a walking stick. Wider paths if you detour down toward lower Pinehurst, but then a nice uphill back. Mostly shady, but the seating area at marker 6 that some have mentioned is not (view instead). About dogs, pamphlet says not permitted in Huckleberry except if passing though on the Skyline National Trail; did see 4 dogs on the lower path today.

Beautiful trail. Nature preserve. Went with my dog but was turned around by a ranger as no dogs are permitted. It's posted clearly. Please update your site.

Great for a hot day with lots of shade. The perfect birthday hike; even with the trail renovations! Only thing is; the trail says no dogs allowed but on All Trails it says they are.

Nice trail, small enough so not to many people were on it, but there is a nice sitting area at marker 6 I would recommend anyone to visit.

It was a very nice trail of ur looking for a real fast hike. I went on it to tire my 4 month old puppy out. But there is a nice spot at marker 6 to do a little reading and I'm forsure gunna visit again

First off, this path is a "nature trail" which means there are numbered plants and trees along the way that you can learn about! There should be pamphlets by the entrance. That made the trail like a scavenger hunt to me. The trail itself is really nice. There's pretty views of the hills but you can't see the Bay from here. It's mostly shaded and there are lots of small trails that you can fork off to. The only thing that got me is that some parts of the trail are SO narrow that I was getting vertigo and hoping that I didn't fall off the side of the hill..

Very pretty, small, fun trail. Went when raining and everything was very lush.

This was a cool trail and it completes with a loop around the reserve instead of having to backtrack from a dead end stop

Pretty relaxing hike, and shaded most of the way. No great views, but nice to be in the forest. The trail is pretty narrow most of the way, which is only an issue because there is ample poison oak off trail. Just watch where you step.

I was able to push/carry my 1-year old in his stroller around the loop. I wouldn't recommend it to everyone. We have a robust 3-wheel stroller with big wheels and there where times he was being bumped around going over rocks and tree roots, but he loves that sort of thing. There were plenty of times as well where I needed to pick up the stroller to get up some areas.

I really enjoyed this trail. It's quite narrow with bountiful poison oak in some areas, so be careful!

Great trail for a short hike and a great work out. By the end you can really feel it in your legs. And it's super easy for all skill levels. The path can get pretty narrow in some areas. There isn't much of a view, but the scenery is really wonderful.
