Great, very scenic trail. Thankful to live close enough to enjoy it often.

Beautiful view of the falls but trails are closed I heard till April. Sad I didn’t get to do the hike!

Was a fun trail took about 3 hours to complete. You get to see a great sight of SF through the trees. It was the first time actually going on a hike with my girl and my dog.

Its closed and fenced, but you can still see the waterfall

We started from inspiration point and hiked all the way to vollmer peak via seaview trail.. about 3 miles one way.. We reached around 9 am there were lot of vacant spaces In the parking lot.. There is also a restroom near the parking lot at inspiration point.. Amazing views of San Pablo reservoir , Golden Gate Bridge and the city.. Nice elevation and great workout.

LOVE this trail. We definitely recommend taking Pomo Canyon first and come back via Red Hill (great views of the ocean and also avoid some rocky uphill) scenery changes often so there is always something to see. Many places to stop and eat/rest. Took us about 3hrs with a lunch stop and many picture breaks!

free parking across street at shell beach. entrance sign is small. AMAZING HIKE. walk through forests, shrubbery, hills, and fields. The scenery changes. lots of little spots and side trails for breaks or reading. beautiful view of ocean and Russian River. great workout coming back up the canyon. bring hats and cover for the Red Hill portion. check wind conditions.

Can’t wait to hike this again. Dogs ok and most of trail is off leash.

Hiked the around the whole lake, it was beautiful. Not to strenuous, we started on the left side by the bathrooms/Marina and would do that again. It was shady and the incline was not to bad.
Going the other way we would of been in the sun during a steep dirt trail portion. Started at 8:30am done by 1:30pm. Stopped after mile 5 or so, found a nice bench with a view for lunch.

If you go clockwise, your climb will be a bit steep to the top, however the descent will be more gradual and pleasant, so if you have knee issues I would suggest to go clockwise. If you prefer a steady ascent but a steeper descent then counterclockwise is recommended.

Wonderful day hike. Views to Point Reyes. Birding Paradise.

I can’t wait for this trail to open again!

When we went, there were a lot of people there so it was impossible to get a photo without others in them. Very beautiful though

Such a beautiful hike and what better than to end at the beach?! It’s a moderate challenge but it def gets your heart beating!

It is a very pretty trail.

This is the best hike I’ve been on in a long time. It’s true hiking trails. No paved roads. You have to pass over streams and climb down rocks and exposed tree roots. It is a tough hike with beautiful views.

Get up there early or you'll feel like your on the I-5 during rush hour... Otherwise it's a pretty decent view from the top which, after so many times I try not to take for granted.

The trail was closed due for safety concerns so we weren’t able to go past the gift shop. Hopefully it opens again soon but it wasn’t worth the drive to see the falls through a chained gate at the bottom of the trail.

Great even on a cloudy day

quick and easy trail that was extremely crowded when I went. parking was also difficult.
