Love love love this place! This time of year there were hardly anyone, very peaceful.

Beautiful trail! North side is more scenic than south side, so if you fear you might not make it across because of the removal of the bridge after September, consider only doing the north side. However, although bridge was out in November, river was easily crossable by foot, so we did the full loop. Trail is very shaded so wear warm clothes in fall and winter.

Easy trail with educational stops. Great weather.

Prairie> Big Tree>Cathedral was a great loop! I highly recommend it, easy, and beautiful trail.

beautiful, enchanted, good for dogs, safe, paved part way, gets progressively more difficult, highly recommended!

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.

Great hike

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. :)

I did 6 miles today. Beautiful out there. I did not see any mountain lions. But did find some bear scat. Bring your bear spray. I will be back to see the salmon spawn.

Super awesome hike!

Got to the trail head w/ my pup and turned back. No dogs allowed ☹️

This was just stunning. I highly suggest this to everyone. It wasn't a long or difficult hike/walk, and absolutely majestic.

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.

We started this trail by the Big Tree parking lot. We went around the Circle trail and came across this trail. It is a fairly easy trail among beautiful tall Sequoia trees. It was a rare sunny day, but the tree tops kept us mostly shaded and cool. It was an awesome hike.

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.

A little bit of everything .... you will want to saunter this trail and strain your neck looking up at great Giants along the way ... can make you feel quite small ... and humbled in the presence of these 2000 year old trees .... worth the time and energy to experience it .... the river sections would be amazing when the water is running but beautiful non the less ...

Nice afternoon walk.

Absolutely beautiful

Amazing. Late fall and winter are my favorite times to hike this gem.

Great little loop. Try to hike this during the winter or spring when the creek has some good flow going. But if you find yourself down here during the fall head up to Albee campground and pick some apples growing in the south field. Many other trails to jump off on and hike around. This part of the park is a real treasure.

Super fun, wholly worth the whole hike. If the last part with most of the gain is too much for a person; 3 miles to the creek and back is much less strenuous then the last 2 miles up and back

Awesome hike

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.

Great hike. There are some hills so would not recommend for true beginner, but relatively easy overall and the scenery is continuously breathtaking. Cool breezes are a plus, too.
