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.

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.
