Beautiful wooded trail along creek. Area close to barrel mill has some downed trees and requires light scrambling

This trail is on the easier side of moderate if you're walking. Beautiful Redwoods look over you most of the way, clockwise offers a gradual incline for about half the hike. Great trail for running!

One of the most beautiful trails I've ever hiked. It goes along Fall creek. We enjoyed listening to sound of the creek all the time. We saw a salamander on the trail, so watch your steps! You can continue the trail for a few more miles than suggested in the map.

the scenery makes you feel like you're in jurassic world. pretty awesome hike

Great trail! Many different types of terrain. Definitely bring lots of water as a good portion of the hike is through sand with little shade. There was a bunch of people so arrive early. If not no worries you can park on the road outside of the park and walk in.

Great trail with lots of trees and water streams . Had a wonderful time with family

Impressive huge redwood. Outlook and Observertory deck can see Santa Cruz. all the main sceneries are within 5-7 mile.

Trail is absolutely beautiful. There were butterflies everywhere and there is something growing out of every nook and crevice. We crawled inside of a 100-year-old kiln. One of the best hikes I’ve been on.

Really great, easy trail. Shade the whole way. In most places it’s wide enough to pass people while keeping a fair bit of distance. Great for kids, if you get a late start, or if you just want an easy afternoon hike through really beautiful forest. Only thing to watch out for is theres a bit of poison oak around the trail so if you have kids keep an eye on them.

Beautiful. This trail has everything. Looming Redwoods, sunshine, lovely lakes and rivers. A bit muddy at points near the water.

Beautiful, lots of people

I was visiting this park on July/1/20. It is no parking fee. I got lucky, I had parking, since the parking is small, I think it can hold about 25 cars. I was hiking a loop about 7 miles with 1,500 FT of the elevation gain. AllTrails rated as HARD. Plenty of shade and Redwoods are amazing! Exceptional hike through the redwoods, very peaceful and beautiful. It was nice to hear and see through the creek along on the way out. No mountain bikes are allowed, so I didn’t have to worried about sharing the trail. Everything was perfect for about 65 percent of my hike. And here came my troubled, some parts of the trails tree down and land slide. Near upper Truck Trail connecting with Fall Creek. It is not well trail mark and no sign said “land slide”. I was lost for about an hour, between Fall Creek to Barrell Mill Site. It was not clear at all, I had to asked another hikers. I found the area of land slide and I had to crossing on logs. Some trails actually came to a dead end. The end my hike was about 10 miles and about 2,000 feet of the elevation gain. I rated as SUPER HARD. Oh... And positive attitude is needed on this loop. I will come back here again for another trails. Happy hike folks.

Gorgeous pine trees hundreds of years old. Shade trail with river flowing. just so nice!

Stellar short path. I spent ages here taking photos. Park outside and walk in to save the park fee.

Great easy trail with different terrain- heavily wooded, then sand at times.

One of my favorite hikes near Santa Cruz! I have done it twice in the last couple weeks. What I love most is that you walk along a creek that is surrounded by ferns and tall redwoods. This is easily the most beautiful hike I’ve done in this area ever. It’s mostly flat and easy along the creek and then goes 400+ ft in elevation up the Ridge Trail. I do recommend bringing bug repellent spray if mosquitos bite you. The trail is shaded and that makes it nice on a hot day.

Very nice trail, completely shaded and good views, very pretty, not too many people in late afternoon, longer than it says though

Nice easy and beautiful hike. Plenty of places to take pictures. So much green! reminded me of jurassic park

Was by far the shadiest hike I've done thus far. It was green and pleasant throughout.

Trail was definitely very difficult to stay on and rather difficult at points. Im still not sure if we were supposed to go of trail or not because we definitely searched for a way to stay on trail and follow the directions. However the plentiful collection of offshoot trail (not featured on the app) allowed us to find alternative paths to get to the goal. However if you want some stunning but steep private river and redwoods exploration this is the trail for you! I definitely recommend a swimsuit (or not, plenty of opportunities go just use your birthday suit).
