Great trail, VERY limited parking so go early or on weekdays. Pretty flat until you hit a few steep switchbacks shortly before the falls. The falls were just trickling today but it’s gorgeous in the canyon with the redwoods, ferns, and moss so still worth it. I did the loop up past the falls to the left, it switchbacks up to a wide fire road which also had some great views of the tree covered hills and the bay. Finished my loop by coming down the Barbara Springs Trail which was very steep & would be tough if muddy.

It’s easy with kids, our son who is 4yo has been able to hike all the way and back. Parking can be a bit tricky, we had to park 5min away from the entrance.
