Very easy first half and the hills kick in during the second half of the hike. Took me 5 hours at a leisurely to moderate pace with stops for snacks. There’s also cell reception.

Loved it! This has to be the most beautiful place I've ever been too! I spent a week in the Redwoods and I made sure to hit this trail twice :)

Absolutely beautiful hike. Short and easy, but the trees in the grove are an amazing sight to behold.

Permit Required to enter the gate. The gate is 6.5 miles from the trailhead so there’s no way around that. Other than that it’s a beautiful easy hike/walk to some huge redwoods.

Easy hike beautiful views!!

Hidden Beach is a gem!! Easy trail with some redwoods lots of fern and great air!

このトレールを歩くには、最初にThomas H. Kuchel Visitor Centerに行って登録が必要になります。ゲートの鍵番号を貰うの。見応えの有る巨大レッドウッドが続きます。最後は河原でのんびり出来ます。ただ、帰りは基本登りなので、その分の体力は残して挑みましょう。歩いて良かったです。

quiet spot in the park that gives a good look at some awesome redwoods and other big trees, then get sweaty on the way back up!

Great trail! It'll def kick your butt on the way back. Get your pass at Thomas Kuchel visitor center first. It's free. Don't forget a mosquito spray. They're really mean at the park. Pack plenty of water. The trail is not 3.3 miles. It's more like 4.5 miles, we tracked it with GPS.

Just hiked 7.5 miles up this trail last weekend. There aren't any stunning views but the forest is very peaceful and quiet. We only saw one other person on a Saturday on Labor Day weekend. The trail is an old logging road so it's wide and gravelly. It was a moderate hike, with some steep sections but ultimately not that hard.

Beautiful prairie!

This is a great hike. It isn't technically difficult at all, more like a city park trail with a good elevation rise back to the car. The Redwoods are amazing.

Short easy hike, not closed anymore.

Good to walk :)

trail was fine. lots of traffic and the parking lot was atrocious. once you got on the trail it was fine though. self guided tour was pretty cool also. this is a super easy introductory hike. take your friends who don't hike kind of hike.

This was a great “break up the drive” loop we took with our kids while driving down the 199. It is kid-friendly, lots of parking, with great views of the ocean.

It’s actually about 12 miles if you do the full loop. Beautiful. The creek is gorgeous. Entire path is trees and trees and trees. It doesn’t really have any killer view points. It did at one point but the trees have taken over, which is ok!

Short and to the point, this trail was an easy one and if you take the effort to drive up to the grove, you may as well walk the whole loop. Tons of beautiful trees and not a lot of people, as we went later in the afternoon when visitors were few and the light was perfect. Would highly recommend it if you’re in the area.

Rigorous, especially for kids. But worth the walk for the views and the adventure. Parts of the trail are slippery and the way back is a climb, but we all enjoyed it.

My GPS said this was 11 miles. I thoroughly enjoyed this trail. Beautiful redwoods and ferns along the entire way, plus Mill creek is a nice spot for a break. Took us 3.5 hours to do it, never saw anyone on the trail just at the parking area. Will definitely do this one again.

Quick and easy, but good way to get a look at a bunch of redwoods. Weather was pleasant, trail was shady. Parking wasn’t ideal, lot was pretty consistently full but we just created our own spot.

Beautiful :) Solo hike. I did this on a Sunday started at around 1pm and thought there would be more people but surprisingly there wasn’t!

Hiked in the late afternoon. Lighting amongst the towering redwoods was spectacular. Very few people there at that time.

Gorgeous, shady, sublimely quiet hike. We got on the trail around 12:30 and the parking lot was full, but most people were coming out as we were coming in. We didn’t pass many people on our way out. Early evening might be the best time to go. Don’t skip the loop at the bottom as it’s the reason for the entire hike. It’s full of huge redwoods, lush ferns, and old growth moss covered maple trees. Our kids thought it felt like a fairy garden (oh and our kids rocked this hike - ages 7 and 4).

on Klamath Overlook

this is a great little hike to see the ocean hand if it's not foggy the river. steep up and down for less than a mile. but when you get to the Overlook the stairs to climb up are in very bad shape. regardless well worth the hike.

Fun easy trail. Great views, especially at sunset.

Number one favorite trail to take non hikers so they can still get a sense of walking through the majestic giant Redwoods. Beautifully maintained. Crowded in summer. Pit toilets at parking.

Views from Bald Hills Road are panoramic. In Spring when the purple lupine bloom it’s a highway of photographers and artists setting up easels. Hike to Lyons Ranch is dirt road. The historic ranch buildings are being preserved to ponder what life was like for the many mixed race families before electricity, cars, plumbing.

Absolutely amazing trail. Larger grove at the bottom and a beautiful clear creek. If you step out into the creek area, you can see the majesty of the y’all trees. I recommend reading the board when you first get to the trail head as there is one tree in particular that is pointed out but we didn’t know that as we didn’t read the board till the end.

If you’re in Redwood, you HAVE to do this trail. No arguments!! It’s super easy to get a “permit” from the Kuchal visitor center. Ask, and they’ll give directions and a lock code for the gate you have to drive through in order to get this trail head. The only thing is that it’s a one way gravel road and they’re doing a lot of construction in the area, but the whole process (including hiking) took only 4 hours. 1. Kuchal center for permit 2. Drive to trail head 3. Hike one of the most incredible hikes you’ll ever do 4. Drive back up. The hike itself is a about 1.5 miles down hill with switchbacks, then a WONDERFUL flat mile loop trail at the bottom surrounded by redwoods, then 1.5 back up. I’m a runner and I gave myself a challenge to run the whole way up, and I made it up in 13 minutes! All that to remind you: HIKE THIS TRAIL
