good for the family

The trail is well maintained and a nice easy walk. The 4 mile drive to the trail, is terrible. No phone service or gps service either.

This trail is currently inaccessible. Multiple washouts have chunks of road missing completely.

trail is still visible even with all the fire devastation. the information signs have all been replaced.

Took the wife and dogs. Very serene and barely a sound other than us...

Really a 1 1/2 which is the worst rating I've ever given a hike... Miles of dirt mountain roads to get to and the trail is just another dirt road that is overgrown. The highlight was a wrong turn and going up toward Mt Emily. But even the views were tainted because of the nearby fire. The trail itself is a nothing and even though sites say the trail is 1.8 miles I didn't actually find the site and never will. The track I posted is wrong as well. The trail was an out and back and it appears as a loop for some reason... Highly recommend that no one bothers with this one!

Nice clean trail. Caution though as the drive in is a little rough. The drive in is 4 miles of largely 1 lane road, with no actual pull outs if you meet someone going the opposite way. Fairly rutted in places too making for a fairly long 4 miles.

Fun trail but be careful it forks of at very beginning of trail and only a tiny handmade sign pointing the right way.

Beautiful little redwood trail that is one of few places redwoods are in Oregon and this one almost straddles the Ca border. The only disappointment is that it is so short and takes a little time to get to. There are some beautiful old growth redwoods that are definitely in a place you wouldn't expect. The trail is 4 miles up a very little used dirt road off the Winchuck. There are a few old logging roads on the way up that are nice hikes that I have done with my dog and I seldom see anyone else there...

As already stated the road to the trail head can be really bad. I managed to make it to the trail head in a small car but i wouldn't recommend it. The trail is easy to follow and leads right to the lake. There are a few camping spots along the lake making for an easy backpacking trail.

Please refer to my "Vulcan Lake" hike elsewhere in these reviews. Little Vulcan Lake is a small and rather shallow lake line with shrubs and patches of darlingtonia (insect eating plants) along a grassy/rocky shoreline. A rather faint trail from Vulcan Lake leads to the obvious location of this nice lake.

The drive to get to the trailhead can be a bit challenging because of the poor roads but can be done with a high clearance passenger vehicle. The hike itself is fairly easy with some nice views east as the trail slowly climbs up to a saddle and then descends towards the lakes. Great views of both Vulcan Lake and Little Vulcan Lake. The main trail leads to Vulcan Lake which is set underneath Vulcan Peak with a couple of nice campsites. The path to Little Vulcan is a little obscure but since the location is rather obvious, it's easy to find. Little Vulcan is fairly small and surrounded by shrubs and grasses with patches of darlingtonia (insect eating plants). This is a great fall hike but could be a bit warm in summer. There's other hiking opportunities from this trailhead to Salamander Lake and Vulcan Peak (just before the Vulcan Lake TH)
