Just an amazing hike with every step a picture perfect opportunity. Very family friendly but like others have mentioned, water shoes or waterproof hiking boots are a good idea. Don’t go in a hurry, and enjoy natures artwork.

Short easy hike, not closed anymore.

An absolute slice of Heaven. Yes you must use hiking poles. Yes you must stop every so often and look up. Even the dirt road driving to the trailhead weaves in and out of all the massive-sized trees. HOWEVER, there were wads of used TOILET PAPER everywhere along the trail!!!! Come on people, if you take it in, PACK IT OUT!!!!!! As I said, this is an absolute slice of Heaven; let's keep it that way.

This hike is beautiful!! Highly recommended checking it out(:

The Rim Trail is a good hike with lots of short offshoots that give you great views. My wife and our 2 year old daughter hiked it. My daughter rode in a jogging stroller the entire length. We hiked a little over 4 miles of the trails. Very Scenic and a good hike. I know these reviews are very subjective but I gave it 3 stars because I felt the day use fee was high, which was needed to park in the park. $8. I know it's a small amount to pay for a nice hike but most other places were half as much, or free. The other reason for 3 stars was that I felt the different trails and offshoots were not marked very well on the ground. The map we were provided was great, but the signs on the trail were a little confusing and I wasn't sure much of the time where we were in the park or whether we had taken the right branch. Other than those things, it is a beautiful hike.

Easy easy easy...decent redwood action, weak waterfall

So beautiful! A must see!

Beautiful, peaceful, easy hike! Well worth the drive back to the trailhead. My husband and I did this hike at 0900 and were the only ones around. Wear waterproof shoes/sandals as your feet will get wet. They filmed a scene from The Lost World Jurassic Park here if that excites you as well.

A beautiful hike! My wife and I carried our lunch in our packs, and ate just after we got to the falls; an easy hike at that point. We decided to finish the entire 2.5 mile loop. Be warned! The last 2/3 of the hike is much more difficult, and--VERY important-- there is NO cell phone coverage in the area. I would upgrade this hike to above moderate for the entire loop; fairly easy for the hike to the falls. The Redwoods are spectacular, (better than LBJ Grove)! Oh yeah, I did not see even one Trillium; they must bloom at a different time of the year.

Absolutely amazing part of the Jed Smith Redwoods. This is by no means a strenuous “hike”. It is a majestic 5 mile walk among some of the largest trees in the world. I highly recommend to ignore the clock and gps (neither of which you need in the first place) and fully experience this sacred trail for what it is. Take your time and go early.

2hr 45mins with 11 and 15 yr old. Measured 6.2 miles incl the falls. Great hike, great redwoods. Roots slow you down a bit but good payoffs at the end of the out and back at boy scout tree and waterfall. Cruddy gravel road to get there. Supposedly the most popular trail in Jedediah but we got there at 2pm on a Wednesday (Aug 1) and parked right at the trail head.

Nice trail. Went around 6pm. Was greeted in the end by a little brown bear. Really scary when hiking alone. But I calmly walked by and it didn’t come towards me. I was by bridge view the elk.

Beautiful hike! The waterfall is very small but there are endless blackberries!

Astoundingly beautiful, even though well trafficked. Easy, even for older, less active folks. I suggest water shoes, you'll get your ankles wet unless you can cross the shallow river/creek on a log (easily done if you have someone with you to hold your hand). So worth the drive on a very narrow, sometimes dirt road riddled with blind turns. Loved it!

amazing to hike such great sights!

Beautiful. Great short hike. Only downsides are that access is 8 miles down a bumpy dirt road, and there are a lot of people. At least 30 cars in the parking lot for a 1-mile loop hike.

Fun area! Little crowded but so worth the sites!

beautiful a must see easy hike except to get wet feet

The actual trail is very short, but if you go to the left and climb all the rocks it will lead you to Wedding Rock. A little slippery in some areas, but great views along the way.

Trail was pretty dry this time of year, no mud. There is a small sign for the Boy Scout tree that veers off the trail to the right and up a ways. We missed it on the way to the little falls, but caught it on the way back. Nice trail. I’m willing to bet it’s not nearly as crowded as in the Redwoods National Park, and probably just about as good. Keep an eye on the trail, the roots can really trip you up. This took me and my sister about 2 hours total walking about 3-4 mph.

Absolutely incredible Redwoods & forest. Like hiking through the primordial period.

Gorgeous fern canyon, lush and moist.
Super easy hike, try to go early or late as it tends to attract large groups and families. Well worth the crowds though. It’s a unique canyon.

$8 fee. Worth the amount of beautiful agates I found! They are everywhere! I could have easily spent half a day collecting agates but I arrived late in the afternoon as this was unplanned. The ocean views are incredible. Also saw a few sea stars :)

wonderful hike in the redwoods! We started about 8am, had the trail & waterfalls to ourselves. Met lots of people going back.. go early! Poles can keep you from tripping on the roots!

Stunning walk with the Redwoods!

Awe-inspiring hike. Walking among these giants is so incredible. Once you get to the Boy Scout tree, you could easily turn around and have seen all the best stuff. The tiny waterfall at the end isn’t much to see. But the trees on the way are amazing. Hardest part is trying not to trip as you look up!
