Lovely, well-marked trail with plenty of shade. Mostly forested. Overall it took us about 1.5 hours at a moderate walk. Met less than 20 people on the trail on a Saturday afternoon. Very dusty with deep loose soil in some areas during dry conditions. Watch out for horse manure! The final mile or so joins a road, which was less pleasant to walk, but not bad. The park is $6 per car to enter, and has plenty of parking, picnic, and restroom facilities.

Mostly shaded! Very nice trail!

Lots of shade easy, but dry

Great! Nice and shady and well marked.

Went counter clockwise, really good the way up, even found a nice bench where I could meditate, but the last 1/4 or so of the trail was lots of loose dirt and very dusty. Maybe they are fixing it? If it weren't for that I would give it 5 stars. Otherwise beautiful and shady the whole way.

good place

Beautiful trail. If you like quiet Redwood trails then this is for you. Basically down 1600 ft.. and back but stunning! Over 6 miles by my All Trails recording.

Just hiked there today. The closed part of the trail has been rerouted to a new one so the loop hike is all good now. Beautiful trail, 90% trail are under shade. The uphill hike when u back to the Lonely trail is a real challenge. Slightly more than 5 miles and took me 3.5 hours to finish. Bring enough water with you. Love this trail!

Lovely, forested, shady hike. A bit long for my 7yo (and had to carry 4yo a good chunk of the way), but very worth the drive. We’ll be back to explore other nearby trails!

Down and up!!! It was amazing! 6/5 stars. Beautiful trail. Will be back. Slightly longer than 5 miles :)

Dean trail is being worked on, so parts of the path are not accessible

Well-maintained, well-shaded, well-marked trail. We went anti-clockwise to get the steep, gravelly uphill out of the way. We accidentally started on the trail parallel but it was easy to get on the correct one. I would recommend anti-clockwise so on the second half you have a nice steady downhill. Some parts of this trail network are closed fully, and some parts closed just on weekdays, but not this one. Still missed a turn (my own fault, there was a marker I just wasn’t paying attention) and headed down the fire road that ended up being closed by the archery place. Wasn’t very busy on a Sunday at 0900. Make sure to bring cash for the $6 park fee.

pretty trail, would be good on a hot day as there is good tree cover. Dean trail is blocked off near Milwok picknick area, as is the fire road alternative to get to Chinquapin. So you'd have to hike back to Crystal spring trail, then Summit Spring trail to get back to the parking lot.

$6 to park. Got there around 11 am and it was not crowded. The Crystal Springs Trail is beautiful and shaded but the Dean Trail was closed off so we had to take Richards Road instead. On the way back, we had to walk under some power lines and through some campgrounds. It was less shaded and nature-y but still pretty nice.

With all the trails out there, this one is not worth the time. Not marked well. Traffic noise. Total disappointment.

Cool trail. Parts are next to the road. $6 fee to park.

Lots of winding up and down through the forest. Lots of great trail views among the trees. Didn't see anyone else on the trail for the entire hike -- hit it just before the park closed for the day. Only negatives were crossing the under power lines a couple of times and the last stretch being nearer to the road and picnic sites.

It does have a lot of shade and trails are pretty well maintained but Avoid this hike in the summer. It's way too warm with no breeze and no views. I would also argue with the moderate rating .. I'd say it's more towards easy. Kind of dull and hot.

Nice wooded trail. It was a tough run for the first 2.5 miles uphill and a quick 2.0 mile run downhill.

Gradual elevation, nice easy trail. We can walked a little further than the estimated distance. Dean trail walks right through a solid amount of camp sites.

We found the trail by going to the Madrone picnic area to park then walked through the AIDS Memorial grove. Lovely up and down trail in redwood forest. Well marked. Shade almost all the way. No one else on the trail on a Friday afternoon.

Lovely walk in the woods. Lots of deer, very few bugs. Near the top you get some nice views as well. Would be hot midday as very little air movement as mentioned earlier.

Good hike. Agree that it’s closer to moderate than easy. Shaded but still hot with no air movement on a summer day of 86 degrees. Used the counterclockwise approach Anne Frisbie recommended and thought it worked well. The trail is good for trail running with mostly dirt trails, some roots and a few stones. No scrambling or significant obstacles.

Lovely shaded trails all around! Perfect for trail running, with a variety of flat(ish) stretches and moderately challenging inclines.

Fun hike. Would rate it more moderate than easy though. We ended up going a different way when someone sprang an ankle. Paved road about halfway.
