Hikes To Do Map

I don't recommend. Views are not more than OK and the path is full of rocks and roots. You will see nothing except trees for 99% of your hike. You can find way better hikes in the area.

Very scenic hike with woods, lakes, mountains and a glacier at the end. Fairly crowded but did not detract from the beauty of this hike.

Nice waterfall but crowded.

Very crowded. Good mountain views and nice lake.

What a beautiful trail. Well marked path with lots of people using the trail. Not long but the top is amazing would definitely go again in the summer

Amazing view and the hike was difficult but I loved it!

We loved this hike! We started across the street from the parking lot went up dipsea then through Matt Davis, it would be easier on the knees if you started Matt Davis then went down hill through dipsea part. This hike had everything .. flowers, tons of greenery, redwoods, beach views and my favorite waterfalls! The ladder is a cool touch too! It is wet and you prob will get muddy! Thankfully we did end up downloading the map because we accidentally veered off the hike and it added an extra hour to our hike but all in good fun! We went on a Sunday, started around 11 am and there wasn’t too many people!

Cold if you're in the mountains shade. There are much better hikes on Tam!

Hiked clockwise this time and counterclockwise last time. Both ways are enjoyable and worth repeating. Good hike, very scenic and a decent workout. Clockwise has more uphill climbing - going clockwise Bootjack to Mountain Theater is the steepest part of the loop. Clockwise time: 3 hrs.

Wow! Beautiful mountain!

Doing it again this weekend, last time was 2015 when I first visited BC. Loved it then! No need for snowshoes, well used and packed down apparently. Unless going further to Greendrop, which is less well trodden.

Beautiful but go early because it’s way to popular and gets real busy.

Saw some waterfalls. Not very hot at all, and not crowded. Nice people everywhere. The redwood trees are gorgeous.

Great hike. We started from the top and left the hardest part for last. The scenery is amazing, especially in the clearing where you get to see the ocean. Got lost on the way back up and ended up taking a goat trail rather, which was very strenuous.

One of the best trials i took in the recent past... thanks to Alltrails..
Lots of water streams and waterfalls... crystal clear water and spectacular sea view :)

Fun short hike for the family during winter. Train cars and suspension bridge are nice payoffs.

I love this hike, but I take the back way because I'm afraid of the cliffs. I really enjoy it until that point.

Almost didn’t go because we thought it was one of Cypress’s paid snowshoe trails. Luckily an employee directed us to the correct trailhead which was a little further down the road from the ticket and rental area.

Great 360 view from the top. Did Feb 18 and it was chilly and beautiful, with mostly packed snow on the trail. Used microspikes. There are some steep sections where it would also help to have poles, but not required. Snowshoes were not necessary and many snowshoers were sliding on their butts down steep sections.

Great moderate hike with waterfalls and scenic viewpoints along the way.

Waterfalls did not have much water. Trail is muddy for a few small stretches but otherwise fine. Some wildflowers starting to bloom.

I found the trail incline hard, not moderate, but worth every step because the canyon is absolutely magical.

Gorgeous!! If you go clockwise (start on Belvedere) you’ll hit a killer first mile uphill, but it’s worth it! The last few miles of the hike are beautiful and you get a view of the ocean and then hit redwoods/waterfalls once you loop back on Tam. Highly recommend this trail, have @ it!

Trail was refreshing. Lots of places to stop and eat lunch. Went there early so it wasn’t so packed. Parked at the Stinson beach parking and walked to the Matt Davis trail.

Great trail! lovely views of the sea, the hills and the redwood trees. It gets pretty crowded so it's good to be early. Started at Stinson beach by the fire station (steep stairmaster-like hike). The trail gets pretty slippery and muddy past the Pan Toll Ranger Station, slipped a bunch of times. This trail is a knee buster! If you have weak knees like me, best to choose a more gradually sloping trail.

Fun hike and great views. My gps calculated 7.95 miles when starting from the north lot at Stinson Beach Parking lot.

incredible views

Agree with others, it’s definitely a moderate and not a hard. Still beautiful, and love the rest stops at the inn and the amphitheater, but tack on one of the peaks to add a bit more exercise to your miles.

Wonderful quick day hike. Gorgeous sights and easy marked trail. Many ways to take to the top which makes it fun and allows you to change it up if you want to hike it multiple times. The waterfall is a great place to sit and splash around in or enjoy a snack sitting on the rocks under the mist of the waterfalls.

Backpacked to Russet Lake from the Whistler Gondola on the way and hiked all the way back out on a loop and we stayed 2 nights at the camp - excellent hike in with beautiful views and good challenging terrain. Camped at Russet Lake campsite and day hiked to Overlord Glacier - good scrambling route and it can be done as a loop back to the campsite. Cold at night bring a good sleeping bag - this was early September and it was cold!
