Park Hours: Fall - Winter Hours, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. PST Park Hours: Spring - Summer Hours, 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. PDT

not so much of a hike as it is a nature walk. the trail itself is short and flat but there is a nice little redwood grove at the end. a nice place for nature portraits!! the park is huge and very family-oriented with playgrounds and picnic areas. don't forget about the $5 entry/parking fee.

Perfect Family Hike!
Took my nieces and nephew on this and they loved every moment of it. The redwoods is a site to see and a peaceful place to just chill and relax. I've done this hike twice with my dog and Nieces and Nephew. Highly recommend. This can easily be done with one bottle of water. I'd also suggest having a picnic over at the redwoods it seriously a relaxing area to be in. Always be respectful and pick up after yourself.
Safe Hiking Everyone!

Awesome trail! Connected to a park.

Love the hike! Seeing the redwood grove is amazing!

Great little hike!

Great walk for kids and families. Only downside (for me) was the amount of cyclists at times had near accidents of almost being run down by cyclist riding a bit fast in my opinion around corners and through more narrow areas of the trail. That part made the site seeing part of it a bit less enjoyable because you're always checking behind your back for oncoming cyclists. Lots of wildflowers and bird watching opportunities. The redwood grove was a great escape to the heat. Being in the grove you literally feel like it's 10 degrees cooler. There's benches to sit and rest a moment in the grove.

I love this trail! I do it every Sunday with my dog Cleo. She and I start on the backside by the Redwoods off of Wabash and do the whole trek. We cross over to the dam through the dirt ravine, walk across the dam, then trek through Coyote Creek to the park (yes, they do have wild coyotes there). After walking through the park, we end up by the northeast trail entrance and loop back to the Redwoods, then back to Wabash. It's about 10,000 steps depending on how much Cleo sniffs around. Lots of waterfowl by the lake

Real hot, if weather up to 85F do not go!

Easy walk to a small redwood grove. Good trail to walk your dog.

Completed this hike with my uncle and it was awesome !Easy and beautiful surroundings .Just make sure you go with someone who has hiked there before as there is not a trailhead that is very heavily designed .

it's a very very easy trail, but the redwoods are definitely worth!

Easy, but good exercise and beautiful.

If you're looking for a hiking trail this is not the park to come to, but if you are after a well taken care of and very clean park then this is the place to come. The short, easy stroll to the redwoods is worth the walk; the redwoods are beautiful and the smell is intoxicating. This is a good park to bring small children to.

love this walk into the Redwood grove. is mostly flat, well maintained road.
