Completed trail on 14 May 2017. Trail listed is a combination of 3 seperate trails (Armstrong Redwoods Tour Trail, East Ridge Trail, and Waterfall Trail). We started on the Armstrong Tour that was very easy and a nice stroll through giant Redwood trees, then followed the ridge back from the welcome center. This portion was definitely more difficult with very steep climb to the ridge top. The Waterfall trail is a very steep and difficult climb from the parking area east parking area to the East Ridge trail.

Depending on which direction you start first, one half of the trail is a lot of up hill and down hill, the other half is all flat and goes through the camp ground. There's a lot to look at and a lot of big beautiful redwood trees, there's also a creek/waterfall. I can't wait to go back!

Lotta people, but this place is absolutely magical. Redwoods are spectacular and hiking amongst them is a true honor. Did a modified loop with the fam.

All the trails say no dogs but almost all the trails in Armstrong follow a road and you can have your dogs on the road. You don't miss too much by following the road.

Great trail! Just enough challenge and distance for my 10 year old nephew! Would do it again!

It was great. I would not say this is an easy trail initially. The first 45 mins was a straight up hill climb. I brought my dog but it was unclear to me if he was allowed?

(I'm guessing this is the Pioneer Trail). An easy, flat hike through a magical forest of giant redwoods. The signs tell you the height, diameter and approximate age of select trees.
