Very enjoyable. Nice hike with some terrain variation and dogs can go off-leash. Bikers seem to enjoy it too and the trail is mostly wide enough for everyone. Good mix of shade and sun and a few vistas along the way. Just enough wildflowers in bloom to make it really feel like spring. As marked, the hike is just over 3.8 miles taking the loop clockwise and going Dunn to Graham to West Ridge to Baccharis to Dunn. There is no trail marker where Baccharis and West Ridge intersect. If you don't take a map, you'll want to note that it's 0.4 miles from Graham to Baccharis as you walk along West Ridge, that way you can keep an eye out for that trail. Or if you take the trail in reverse you can't miss the turn from Baccharis to West Ridge as that's where Baccharis ends. You can park in the lot off Skyline at Crestmont Drive and walk behind the building to get to the trailhead. Or, if you park off the road near where Joaquin Miller Road and Skyline meet, you can join the about trail 0.1 miles in.

Great hike, lovely wildflowers all along the path. Could not find the loop (did not download the map) so circled back after 2 miles. Lots of ups and downs so feels like a nice workout and plenty of shade along the way. Several lovely vistas to look over the valley and over to the bay. Very enjoyable.

Great hike with lots of shade. Golden Spike trail is fascinating with some narrow passages and lots of back and forth amidst redwood trees and a few streams. Enough climbs to keep it interesting but on the east side of moderate.

Beautiful mostly quiet trail with many different kinds of wild flowers. Sunny but with some redwoods and shade at times. Easy, not much up hill if you go clockwise. The trail can be a bit hard to follow with the signposts and map but we managed to find our way around. Take a map at the parking lot! Lots of dog owners and their dogs!

Beautiful walk, most of it in the shade and alongside a stream. The only caveat: the last mile to mile and a half is STEEPLY uphill, and may be too much for some casual hikers. Otherwise, I had a terrific time, and will definitely be going back.

We night hiked this loop starting at just before sunset and finishing about 5 minutes before the park closes at 10. Beautiful views of the city at night, then the moon rose a burning orange before facing into a clear white light to hike by. The wide, flat (ish, still some occasional roots and rocks to watch for) trail made for easy night hiking. the length was just perfect, about 2.5 hours. Saw tiny snakes, huge spiders, and a little orange newt!

A little longer than the Burr, Graham, and WestRidge trail loop.

Comfortable shaded hike. Good for young kids.

If you go during the winter months, look for the lady bugs at the Stream & Prince intersection. They’re usually are a few hundred of them covering the one sign post. I hiked this trail on 1/28/18 and the lady bugs were thriving on that day.

I think this is a great hike to bring your non-hiking or beginning hiking friends as it’s pretty easy but has some uphill sections and variety.

Really nice hike! We took the Stream trail first, which is to the right of the parking lot. Stream trail is mostly flat or downhill- easy peasy. Prince trail is where you start to really climb- challenging incline but not too long and it connects you up to East Ridge trail which is a combo of incline and flat. Stream trail is lined by lovely redwoods and oak trees all the way and is nice and covered. East ridge is more exposed with less shade, but some beautiful views close to where it connects to Prince. Overall great hike - not too hard but not too easy either. Also good if you don’t have a ton of time.

It's a nice trail for beginners, lots of redwood. Glad I got to see ladybugs gathered in several locations in the park.

Hiked with 3 kids (1.5yo,3.5yo,5.5yo) - older two walked the whole way. Mostly under canopy. LOTS of cyclists (a little too fast esp with the kids around). Also lots of dogs (on and off-leash). Took about an hour. Easy and ample parking on the side of the road and directly in front of the trailhead (right past Roberts park entrance).

Mostly shaded well defined trail with multiple forks. A good 2 hour hike!

Great, varied hike. I agree that the Graham trail was the best part!

Really enjoyed the hike - great views from the TH (which has a lot of parking). Extended the hike on Baccahris trail to West Ridge - also extended to Redwood Peak which was a nice walk but not many views from the actual peak. Graham trail is the best part of the hike. The one downside - was pretty busy for an early Friday

I loved this hike. The Mill trail is closed for maintenance because it is unsafe at this time, so we had to take the stream trail back to Tres Sendas and get to French trail from there. The views are gorgeous, and there are enough breaks between the uphill climbs on Tree Sendas. I’m definitely doing this loop again, and can’t wait to try the Mill trail route when it reopens.

Less crowded but not as pretty as nearby Redwood Park.

Awesome park with so many great trails...

Lovely hike. The only issue we had was that the “loop” includes more than just Dunn trail. We got off track a couple times thinking we should stay only on Dunn.

Depending on your pace (ours was a run/jog), it’s a nice, quick, moderate butt-burner workout. Trail is well-kept, beautiful redwoods and eucalyptus trees line the paths. Very dog-friendly.

Perfect mix of sun and shade. Note that you have to take Serpentine and Goldenspike trails to get to Dunn if you are starting counterclockwise from the south. No benches or water fountains on the trail.

I love this trail, it’s just right! You can make it short enough or long enough I love how there’s shade threw most of the trail.

I loved this trail! It's not too difficult, mostly flat. Although the trail head is pretty crowded, it clears out a little ways down the trail. Nothing starts the day out better than a stroll through the redwoods!

Not many people
far away from city
Good work out
Natural

Trail was awesome! Majority of it is totally shaded so if you go on a hot day you will be fine! I didn't hike the complete loop because when I got to the end of the Stream trail (2.6 miles) I didn't realize to loop back around you had to take the West Ridge trail on the way back but I'll know for next time. Brought the pup and he loved it as well!

I'm 6 months pregnant and this was a good workout for me. This is a moderate hike with relatively mild ascends and descends if you tackle it counter clockwise. Lots of shade, beautiful redwoods, and nice views. The only downside were the horse piles near the beginning and end of the trail.

I have always enjoyed hiking in coastal redwoods. The red woods look beautiful when sun starts to set and sun rays hit the trees at and angle and light up selective areas in the woods providing excellent photography opportunities!!!

Great variation in scenery - forest and exposed areas. Wide trails. Dogs are allowed off leash on the East ridge trail. Do loop clockwise so you go downhill on Canyon trail
