I did this trail with ranger guides for the initial part - which was awesome to learn about the different growths, history, folk lore. Definitely having the ranger enhanced the whole experience!

If this would have been my first hike in the Redwoods I probably would rate it higher. Not as much old growth as I expected. The trail IS very easy and I would recommend it for small children.

Words don’t do this hike justice.

The trial is in great shape. Wonderful view all the way down and back. Beach, rocks, driftwood, cows, cliffs, waves, sun.

Hiked in September 2018. Easy walk - the ferns were almost as impressive as the redwoods.

Great little trail I did again today and have done many times. Almost always just me and Brook, my Lab. She loves this wide open trail.

Took my family for a little hike. They loved the scenery. This place is beautiful. well kept as well. Love that the trail is dog friendly. My German Shepard is going to love this trail. Going back real soon.

if you're on the south Oregon coast, you will definitely want to see this.

One of my favorite trails in the area!!! What I like about this trail is that it is a botany trail and a historic trail as it follows a trail used by the gold miners way back when. Be careful hiking this trail in the fall and winter because this trail can get very slippery and is right on a hill, so don't fall or it may hurt. With that said, you will not regret hiking this trail.

super fun rim trail detour

Beautiful trail, lovely views!

This is a nice, minimal-effort trail. It's short and flat. You wind your way through some nice redwoods. I came here on Thanksgiving, when it was raining a bit, and I only saw one other group of people in the area (on a different trail) so I had this one all to myself. Definitely best when done in conjunction with other trails, but it could also be a solo trail for the whole family.

Easy and great view

Did this hike years ago and is still one of my all time favorite hikes. Quite easy, but spent a couple hours meandering and looking at the trees

Easy trail with educational stops. Great weather.

Wondeful woods! Easy hike, and well marked

Beautiful hike. I was only bummed because there was not a brochure that told us about the number.

Ferns and fallen trees make the forrst floor lush and beautiful. This is a Great trail to wander and take your time.

This leads to a beautiful outlook. I would rate this moderately difficult as there is a significant descent to the outlook and ascent back to the trailhead. It took us around 30 minutes round trip.

Was fun because you got a tour sheet which told you where to stop and gave you a blurb.

Very flat, easy to do. Would suggest

LOVE! You have to do this! We went and there was nobody there and it was gorgeous :)

Came here on a Wednesday @2pm. becomes "off road" about 3 miles before the trail head. Unfortunately, my scion xb wouldn't make it to the head (due to "creek" more like puddle) all the way so we parked about a little over a mile before getting to the head. My friend and I didn't mind at all, it made the hike a little longer. The actual hike was beautiful, where good shoes, and take a camera. :)

Loved it! This has to be the most beautiful place I've ever been too! I spent a week in the Redwoods and I made sure to hit this trail twice :)

Absolutely beautiful hike. Short and easy, but the trees in the grove are an amazing sight to behold.

Awesome for family spent a long time here, great meander through the woods. Snuck down to the river- lots of surface action. Grabbing rod.

If you want to mix it up from just viewing Redwood trees I’d say this is a must do. While there were footbridges in place, and well placed rocks/logs, just plan on getting your feet wet. The trail makes a loop and returns via the forest on top of the canyon but I think most people do it as an out and back through the canyon as that’s the most interesting part. It’s a bit of a drive on a winding gravel road through the trees to get here, and it’s a day use fee area (unless you have a parks pass or other), but it’s worth it for this hike and the secluded stretch of coast.
