So many mountain bikes. Not fun to share this narrow trail with them. There's an awesome big tree in the meadow though.

Beautiful and pretty flat trail. The directions for the loop back was not very clear, but we ended walking back through the fern ravine, sunset and palos colorados, which was pretty, but a bit more steep. It is wonderful to have such beautiful nature close to the city.

This one was lovely! Both shady and sunny. Be aware that this is one of most trafficked biking trails of the area and most of the trail is narrow, so a bit uncomfortable at times. But besides that I really recommend it!

Nice easy trail that's mostly shaded. Only down side is all the bikes.

This trail smells amazing! I did this on a Monday at 9am and it was perfect. Highly recommend

Good for biking, not so much for hikes or dogs

Wonderful and easy trail with great views!

I recommend this as a beautiful easy trail. The sequoias smell like Christmas! Well marked and fairly level, but not a road - a true trail through the forest.

nice beautiful Four Mile Trail right in our backyard

Sunset to castle to big trees to Sequoia and back

Nice trails, good for trail running. My pup and I had a great hike. Pay attention to the trail signs if you don't have a map as there are lots of trails that are adjacent to each other and look super similar. Would have been fun to explore with more time. I would go during the week to avoid all the foot traffic, dogs off leash (if that's something that bothers you), and mountain bikes on these tiny trails. Plenty of shade and nice decent incline for those booty gains.

We veered off Sequoia to Castle to Big Trees and Paolo and enjoyed the off beaten feel of the path. Got some elevation in there and some vistas. Be mindful of bikers. In midst we were surprised by a beautiful buck. (Sigh to all the beauty!)

If you like hiking in the shade of tall, beautiful trees, then this is the place for you. Amazing.

Lots of shade. Weird thought, but it smells really good, like bay leaves. Beautiful trees.

Beautiful, easy walking trail. Occasional bikes passed (hiked it in the fairly early morning) with other trail runners and people walking their dogs. Not an overly crowded trail in the morning with beautiful scenery, nice shade and an easy, level hiking path.

A beautiful fairy-tale like trail. It’s a narrow sun dappled trail from the trailhead and then a bit of an ascent once you get to the loop part. Lots of bikers on that loop so beware if you’re on foot. I actually started this hike at Dimond Park and crossed under the highway to pick up this trail. See my recording.

Nice and easy trail with a good amount of shade.

Easy trail with lots of bike and pedestrian (with pet) traffic. Lots of shade - so cool!
