Hard to all this a hike, but the view of the bridge was amazing. It’s more like walking down a bunch of stairs to a platform. Slippery when wet, of course.

We took this trail after Canopy-Lost-Fern Creek trail. This trail passes Cathedral Grove, Bohemian Grove and Founders Grove. This trail is popular for public even children and elderly.

Amazing views and photo ops, lots of steps but point your camera and shoot and you have a postcard !!!!

It’s so beautiful. I love this place.

Easy trail with a few stairs that take you down to one very nice view of the gorge, the New River, and the bridge. Easy access from the visitor center. Be sure to go into the visitors center, the staff is very helpful on your adventures into this beautiful area.

Cute little walk and a great little ride around the loop! Stopped as a pit stop on our way to the lake!

It’s nice beautiful trees

Nice, but more hyped up than imagined. Just about every hike in the area is similar unless you go far, and you can only look at the same tall trees so long before getting bored. California has many other, more exciting hikes, but if in SFO area, this is a decent area. Pain that you need to book in advance, bit keeps crowds of tourists out.

Beautiful

I was underwhelmed. Parking is a hassle and you have to pay ahead and come during your designated time slot. You can only see so many giant trees and the trails are a bit too manicured and landscaped to feel like an actual hike.

Loved seeing the Big Red trees. Took the path leading up the hill. great little hike. 1st time had to park like a mile away... so get there early.

Easy

Enjoyed this trail a lot! We went early but it was still very busy. We took some of the trails off of Muir Woods and thoroughly enjoyed it!

Beautiful trail! Accessible to everyone. BUSY and people are not as quiet or necessarily as respectful as they should be. You do need to reserve your parking space if you are thinking about driving over there. It costs $8. Loved that my husband could come with me. Hes not a hiker and he was easily able to do this. Gorgeous views.

It is beautiful here! We drove the loop which leads down to New River and let the kids play in the water. Great place for taking pictures.

Amazing, and a reverent, quiet kind of a place. We hiked the bridge 4 to Hilltop Trail, and it was a nice 1.5 hour leisurely hike...

Good accessibility for wheelchairs; incredible opportunities for redwood viewing

Easy walk through the huge redwoods surrounding you. It’s definitely busy and not as peaceful as one would like since it can be crowded and people aren’t as quiet as they should be. But overall gorgeous.

Always beautiful and super crowded. Love this place but the crowds and parking make it tough.

Beautiful!! The old growth redwoods are huge and magical. I wouldn’t call this a trail since it’s more of a walk. Perfect for older parents/grandparents, wheel chair accessible, path is a wood boardwalk for the first half and a well groomed dirt trail for the second half of the loop back from the ‘4th bridge’. There are many places to sit and rest. Come early! Like arrive at 8:30 am early! Get your required parking reservation online. There are tons of crowds and you’ll have to wait for a parking spot to clear up (even with a reservation).

Wonderful trail. Was just walking and saw a red fox.

Other than the first half mile which is on a gravel road this is a great hike with several vistas. I only did 4 miles out and back since the wind was blowing 25 to 30 miles an hour but it was still a nice hike.
