This was a great trail. The flies/gnats/mosquitos are thick in some spots as it follows a creek/stream. It walks up to a picnic area that has BBQ grills and looked like a nice spot for the family. The trail headed up but I turned to follow another loop around. there are multiple trails and ways to go around. if you wanted to get in several miles, you could. there is also hit and miss cell service in the area and I was able to follow google maps for trail locations. it was a nice hike. I recommend it.

It was a nice flat trail plenty of redwoods and plenty of Bailey’s. Great for dogs there were some mountain bikes. It was an early morning walk.

It's a little hard and the trail is very narrow. I wouldn't take kids on this, I took my dogs and they were fine. Really gorgeous waterfalls!

Such an incredible trail. Endless combinations.

Lovely trail! Super well maintained and super views. Only complains are the amount of mountain bikers and lack of clarity in some areas of where the trail is. There are a lot of small shoot off trails which make it a bit confusing; we had to keep looking at the phone to make sure we were going the right way. The trail is mostly shaded which makes it wonderful for a hot day.

great trail with a variety of ecosystems and viewpoints. Be careful of mountain bikers but other than that highly recommend this trail.

Perfect, beautiful short trail among the beautiful giants!

This was a great hike with the family. I give it 4 stars instead of 5 only because we had some trouble reading the markers and went off track for awhile. It is also full of bikers so be careful to listen for them--they sneak up on you quickly, and we had to keep the kiddos close by so they wouldn't get run into.

Muddy! Go counterclockwise for a steeper initial climb. Some glimpses of the city across the bay as you go. A few patches of lovely redwoods.

It was a beautiful trail! Perfect for a run with my dog :) I went in the morning on a week day and I only saw 2 bikers. The trail is mostly shaded and flat, so nice for running/walking!

Really enjoyed this one. I’ll echo everyone else on the mountain bikes. There were a ton of them, which was mildly annoying, but they were polite and I still got significant stretches of trail to myself.

Nice shady hike and very well marked trails. Dogs are supposed to be on leash but the majority weren’t. Also a lot of mountain bikers. Made me a little nervous having my small dog there.

Great hike. I did Sequoia bayview first then found my way to Cinderella. Wouldn’t have found Cinderella if it weren’t for the map. It was steep going up the trail but nothing terrible. Lots of bikers on the trail which could be very dangerous if you/they aren’t paying attention. No views of the city, but surrounded by trees which was beautiful. Will do again because it’s so close to gone.

this is a perfect getaway from the city really near from where i was staying in oakland is a perfect trail for a half a day o less for those who don't have lots of time. beautiful and green a little muddy lots of bikes but is ok for a slow walk.

It’s a beautiful trail. I think it’s closer to 4 miles, based on my Fitbit. Some rocky terrain, and steady inclines and declines. Definitely a moderate hike.

Lots of mountain bikers. They were friendly and courteous, but it gets old to step to the side. A few other hikers. One had her big dog off leash and he charged at me. I asked her to keep him away, but she couldn't control him. Adrenaline rush I wasn't expecting!

Took my pup on this was a gorgeous trail! Minimal traffic, very quiet, and peaceful. I would recommend going counter-clockwise of this trail as the gradual hike up was very doable.

This trail is easy and quick. Went with a couple friends who don’t usually hike but it wasn’t bad for them at all, they enjoyed it. You won’t get much views but it is very shady with all the beautiful trees. Would recommend to anyone just looking for an easy trail to just relax

Was expecting views but still an easy, scenic trail

Took my pup on this lovely hike. The only downside to this spot is how popular it is with the mountain bicyclist. Just be mindful to keep your eyes and ears open for the cyclist, they were all very kind, just don’t frequent this trail with headphones in.

Great hiking trail for a hot and sunny day. Nice views along the way, but gotta watch out for bikes. They come fast
