Where Meteor Trail meets the Skyline to the Sea Trail, take a short trip left to see a waterfall. This is right after the "slippery rock" part.

Beautiful hike in the Redwoods. Pro’s: a lot of secluded moments amongst the gigantic trees. Cons: the last two miles were on a trail right next to the main road into the campground, where you go through a lot of campsites. Would definitely do the hike again - note that the first two miles are pretty straight up a hill. There is quite a bit of steep downhill miles 3 and 4. The whole hike is super well marked. Also well shaded. Don’t really need sunscreen but would recommend mosquito repellent!

Great redwoods hike. Not too difficult, plenty of paid parking. The drive to the parking lot is narrow and windy but would definitely do again.

Very nice trail.
We made it clockwise and wasn't bad.
It is more like 7.5 miles not 6.1 but we didn't really care.
Combination of dense shade with sunny portions on top, sequoia, just bushes, something for everyone.
No ocean view as it was lots of fog over it.

Meteor trail is amazing! Thick damp forest with banana slugs and wild mushrooms.

The Middle Ridge is a fire road but the forest is gorgeous and it was fun to climb out of the Redwoods into a completely different ecosystem on the ridge. Geologists will enjoy the ridge for it’s unusual rock formations.

Very good hike, but following the map provided by park is real horrible rather just follow the trail signs.

This trail does NOT allow dogs. We found this out when we arrived with dogs and were told dogs are only allowed on the paved service road. So we didn't get to hike the trail at all. I would call first and ask the park rangers if you plan to bring along your dogs on any trail.

This was a great hike that took my girlfriend and I about 3.5 hours. It was recommended to us by one of the guides at the main station. It has three sections of old growth Redwoods: one along the Dool Trail, one along the Meteor Trail and one along the Sequoia Trail. It is mostly shade covered except for a portion of the Middle Ridge Road but it's not much at all. The "sea view" is mediocre but you can see the canopy from the highest point of the hike which is cool.
