So much fun! A friend told me that there were redwoods but I wasn’t expecting 200+! I felt like I had escaped Southern California for the short time we walked/sat under them. Definitely will be coming back.

Nice path. Took the kids out and it was a nice easy walk. Lots for them to see, bunnies, squirrels, ducks around the lake. Stroller friendly.

The temperature drops around 20 degrees under the trees. It’s a thing to experience in person. Short trail but fun.

A short and fairly easy hike but lots of pretty things to see. The redwoods are fantastic. Go around 7 when its still cool and hardly anyone there.

super busy trail. haven't been here in years and probably won't be back. Houses are built up all around the trail. So many millennials taking photo shoots of their dogs around the trail. Was once a hidden gem. Not so much anymore.

Nice easy trail! Cloudy today, just perfect! The redwoods is the highlight of the trail. Beautiful sunflower fields too! Lots of markings on the trail. You won’t get lost and well maintained.

$3 for the parking, kids friendly. Easy trail, you will see a lots of beautiful sunflowers, and redwood trees afterwords. The scenery changes, so you won’t get tired of walking!

Easy stroll, mostly exposed with no shade until you reach the Redwood Grove (gorgeous & about 10 degrees cooler). Entrance to the trail is at the far east end of the parking lot, closest to the main street. We were able to find parking across the street in a small lot (~5 spaces) for free.

$3 fee on Monday. Beautiful park. Started with the Redwoods lots of share. Headed to the trail after with 4 kids no shade but nice flowers and a lot of blue birds. Ended our day at the park area, kids feeding the ducks.

It's fine trail to walk after get off from work, albeit unexciting and minimal elevation changes. Trail is wide, dusty. Park near the intersection of Wabash and Prospect and walk in to avoid the entrance parking fee.

A moderate trail with the added loop above the park. The added loop has a beautiful panoramic view. It also adds some small hills to an otherwise easy hike and brings the hike to 5 miles.
