Great trees. Nice hike. Great views. May need hiking sticks for safer trails but not necessary.

Second time hiking the Big Trees trails. Absolutely wonderful. Easy 7 mile hike. Gotta love those Redwood Trees! Great walking on a hot day. 95% is through the trees.

You don't really think of redwoods in Novato, but this trial changed between bay trees to redwoods to manzanita and then back to redwoods carpeted with ferns. It's a great change of atmosphere and elevation.

Good choice for a warm day, about 90% in the shade. Stretch it out a bit and start from the trail head at the end of center road, stay left and you'll get some nice views of Stafford Lake.
