I wouldn’t call this easy but it’s a nice hike and beautiful water falls.

It's not Moderately difficult. I would say it's easy. The approach driving to the trail head can be breathtaking when the grove of (birch?) trees leaves are all golden yellow.

Good little walk to do, as long as you there to do other trails. Wouldn't go just for this.

I'm not in great shape. But, I wouldn't call this "easy". Beautiful hike tho!

So, I drove 4 hours to see this majestic little piece of paridise to find....HOMELESS CAMPS! I counted 6 within a half mile from the parking area. The parking area is right on the main road, which is convenient, if you want your car broke into. There was trash everywhere, and people racing up and down the road. This is sickening.

Went on hike to b Big Tree. Good hike beautiful forest. about 2.5 miles.

was any amazing hike. hiked this trail all the time as a kid. took my 5 year old son and he had a blast! only down side is we heard cars were getting broke into and gas tanks getting siphoned, luckily none of the cars parked were messed up however we chose to have someone drop us off and take the car with them. other than that this is a perfect hike for families, just watch the narrow spots!

Lovely hike through the 2002 Biscuit Fire burn area. Surreal white tree trunks. Some unusual wildflowers but not the Kalmiopsis, drat.

I love this hike. Two trails to pick from. The one on the parking lot side is great in the spring time full of flowers, but in summer the one on the other side of the road is best it is mostly in the shade.

Fun trail to run with some decent climbing and roller coaster twisty turny switch backs. We went on a Tuesday morning and had no trouble with the trail being crowded but I could see it being an issue with lots of bikes on the weekend. Great trail for off peak hours.

Intended on hiking this early today, when parking I saw two cars with windows smashed in, decided against it just as a heads up to everyone. I was very excited to do the hike but didn’t want to deal with that.

Went in early October, beautiful scenery with mossy trees and trickling mini waterfalls. Lots of poison oak popping up so just and avoid it. Trail pretty narrow the whole way with steep drop offs to river so had to hold the 2 year old almost the entire trail. 8 year old loved it though and had no problems.

Don’t bother with this one, unless you love disappointment and mosquitoes. There is a geocache here that is a quick grab. The myrtle tree is burnt out and not impressive. Save yourself and hike the Redwoods.

Love the hike. It was beautiful this time of year and the weather was perfect. Watch out because it’s super rocky and if you trip and fall you could go off the edge as the path is super narrow. I tripped and fell on my way back to my car. I’m a fairly new hiker so it was likely me and not the trail though.

Did both sides of the river. Beautiful hike.

Loved this hike! The scenery is beautiful. And there are some smaller trails off the main trail to get to the beaches by the water. I’ll definitely be back to hike this trail again.

This would be a nice hike if it weren't for the rude and dangerous mountain bikers. It is called Toothpick for a reason, very narrow often with no room on either side and the bikers come flying down the hill not even having the decency to tell you there are others behind them. Definitely not good for taking your dog.

I have little respect for these bikers.

Love this hike! watch out for poison oak!

Good trail, but not for everyone since you have to climb over and go under some logs. Perfect weekend for wild flowers.

It's a great hike, but certainly not for anyone who brings a big dog. The trail is very narrow and extremely rocky at certain points. I would also caution against bringing young, inexperienced children on this trail.

Not the experience I was looking for... Out on the edge of this I came across a guy that was growing pot. As I got farther down the trail I heard several gunshots so I cut it short and got out of the area...

This is not an easy trail. If you are not agile and long legged, you are in for trouble. Some of the "steps" are too tall for most average person. Yes, the falls are fantastic, but go understanding the terrain. The last step is a knee killer.

This is a beautiful area, but not great for hikers. There were multiple groups of mountain bikers and we had to be constantly be ready to jump off the trail. If you’re a mountain biker, this is a great trail!

Go to the other side of the river and hike whiskey creek. It’s way better.

this was an awesome Trail did not realize how stupid was close to the top but we managed with a toddler screaming at us the whole time LOL

Great hike. Path a little confusing at times but worth it. Beautiful views of river and falls. Would wear hiking boots instead of sneakers next time.

Took Kid 2 on this trail. 11 year old had no trouble and it was a nice short walk. We took took our time and talked about we saw, so it was about 25 minutes. This is easily a 10 minutes walk in and out.
It is a bit soft and a bit muddy in places right now. Totally passable with no problem, though.
Knee warning, it is all uphill on the way in so those looking for a short walk with bad knees should pass.

Snow covered some of the trail but it was a beautiful hike. We were the only two the whole time so it was nice to have the solitude. Some trees are across the path also but easy to climb over or under. It was a great hike.
