one of my all time favorite places to hike

Beautiful trail, although part of it in the middle was under construction and we had to go back. There were other trails also worth to see. Free parking, lots of deers :)

Nice views....Great for day hiking.. will do it again ...

Get there early! I went on a holiday weekend and didn’t arrive until 1 pm, parking was full. Ended up being able to pay for a spot at a camping site thanks to the good graces of some campers but otherwise would’ve missed out on the park. This hike is nice trip through the redwoods with a rewarding desert like summit. Nice workout at a quick pace but not super challenging. Took me 2 hours.

Very good day hike. Some steep sections and good range of scenery with some good views of Silicon Valley

Okay hike. Pretty steep with some shade here and there. Consistent incline throughout the whole thing.

It’s a great hiking trail with scenic view.

Good moderate trail with some inclines on the track. Some beautiful scenes of the Forrest on the way.

Decent hike. Lots of inclines for a good workout. Saw some deer and butterflies, but not many views. Lots of shade though so good on a hot day.

Love this hike, but the trail has been closed for construction :(

Good hike , view was disappointing

The beginning is steep, and it was pretty foggy the day we went. The fog was actually kind of cool, though. Good 1:30ish hour hike.

It’s a great hike, but it’s incorrectly listed as a 6 mile hike. I measured it with a GPS tracker and it’s 8.2 miles.

MOSQUITO CITY! Be prepared! Arrived 8:45a on a Sunday. Plenty of parking, but lots of people milling around. Once I got on the trail, only encountered a few groups, mostly near the trailhead. Was glad I did the loop clockwise, so I was going downhill on Meteor trail, which was by far the prettiest part of the hike. It’s a narrow ravine full of ferns and a few Redwood groves. Kind of a fairyland, made more magical by the fact that I was all alone there. Except for the mosquitos. The rest of the hike was pleasant.

a fav on a cool morn!

pretty consistent incline, but perfect for heartrate.

Gorgeous view, the trail itself is not that challenging but the trail signs are a bit confusing, grab a map at the trailhead

Great hike through some beautiful old growth redwood forest with some mixed chaparral as well. A little longer than advertised—I measured it on my GPS at 5.5 mi.

Beautiful and moderate forest trail with plenty of nature features to check out.

A Nice Hike to go to on even on a hot day. North Rim trail was closed so took the switchback trail to south rim trail. Wasn't too disappointed though. The switchback is a pretty good workout in itself. The park as such is a really good place to plan a group picnic. A lot of Picnic spots and tables with nets for some outdoor shuttle or some volleyball. Loads of trails and biking routes. Many alternatives to lengthen the trek. Definitely looking forward to coming again and doing another trail

Good tree cover. Fun hike!

Enjoyed the sanborn trail!

Loved this trail! All the tree coverage made it a very pleasant hike on a hot day, and the scent of wildflowers and herbs along the way was intoxicating :) Can’t wait to go back!

Love this trail although closed passed the switchback

Nice hike. Went from East to West so uphill was more intense, but the path is nice and the view from the top is brilliant. A camera doesn't do the redwoods along the way justice.

The ascend was beautiful, shady and calm. Lovely hike for mornings. Park has two free parking lots and you get a spot if you are inside by 10.30am. You will have to walk a mile from the parking lot to reach the trail head.

Good elevation, running through the red woods is always fun. First quarter mile a little trickier to navigate due to lack of signage and it being my first time on this route. Fog was rolling over the mountains today for a nice tree rain at the top. $6 parking fee if you want to park inside the park.

A great walk on a warm day, lots of shade and plenty to see

People complaining about to this park, just a bunch of whiners. There's no resaon to post review as a 3 *** or 2 park. This is an AMAZING place to hang around with family and friends. Live to the fullest people!
