Trillium Falls Trail is a 2.7 mile loop trail located near Orick, California that features a waterfall and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and walking and is accessible from April until October.
Very nice trail that's easy enough more people than just hikers can enjoy. There are a lot of beautiful trees to see here. The hike goes uphill gently then down with great panoramic redwood views 70% of the time. The only downsides is it starts out on asphalt, part of it is on an old roadbed and you always hear traffic noises from 101. Otherwise it would have been 5 stars from me. Don't expect much from the falls themselves. Not much to it... Highly recommend and it's one I'll do again.
Very beautiful scenery, like from a fairytale. Sometimes even a little bit unreal. It is indeed a very easy walk, and the trail is very soft and smooth, but sometimes a little bit muddy.
What a great trial. Felt like this was where they filmed part of the star wars movie where the Ewoks lived. Amazing waterfall. Easy hike more like a stroll
It was one of the most beautiful places I have been.
Nic hike through amazing coastal redwoods. If you take the upper loop its .5-.7 miles to Trillium Falls
This was a fantastic trail for our family. Our kids (ages 13 down to 5) kept saying "look over here" or "did you see this yet" or "isn't this amazing?" We all loved it! Our 8 year old put it best - "We just started this hike and it's already unbearably awesome!"
Beautiful short trek through the woods. Enjoyed it and will do again.
We all enjoyed this trail, will go back (someday, we live on the east coast).
a MUST see trail! what a shock entering this trail compared to the parking area! it's like entering a fairy tale! we kept giggling waiting for a little troll to jump out! unbelievably green and peaceful and serene the entire path. park as suggested at the Elk parking area, it's just a hundred feet or so to the trailhead and as you head up the wee gravel trail and through the green shrubs... well, you'll just have to find out for yourself.
Great little exercise loop, beautiful surroundings, and a bathroom to boot!
