Getting There

This hike showcases every aspect of the park. It begins above a large meadow, then drops down into oak and bay woodlands before climbing over streams and through redwoods, with views of the valley along the way. Golden Spike Trail and Tate Trail in particular have gorgeous valley views. After descending from West Ridge Trail to parallel Redwood Creek, enjoy the picnic areas and redwood groves along the Stream Trail. Additionally, Graham and Dunn Trails at the end of the hike both have points at which they overlook the bay. Trail Directions: Park at the Trudeau Center parking area and head right, to the Serpentine Prairie trailhead. Follow Serpentine Prairie Trail to the left for about 200 ft, then turn left to connect with Dunn Trail. Go right on Dunn Trail, and then make a left onto the Golden Spike trail. Follow Golden Spike Trail for 1.04 mile, continue past the intersection with Montiero Trail, and turn left onto Tate Trail. Climb for .57 mile, then turn right on West Ridge Trail. After .09 mi, turn left onto Orchard Trail. After .55mi, turn left on Bridle Trail. Follow Bridle Trail for .2 mile, then cross the bridge to Stream Trail. Turn left and follow Stream Trail for almost 2 miles, until you reach Tres Sendas on your left. Follow Tres Sendas over two stream crossings; after the second crossing, take the left fork for Starflower Trail, which climbs for .38 mi until it intersects with Madrone Trail. Turn right on Madrone and climb for about a half mile to reach West Ridge Trail, then continue on Madrone towards Redwood Peak. About 200 ft before the peak is another fork; take the left trail, which leads uphill past an archery range, to reach the peak (do not descend on Redwood Peak Trail).

Love this loop especially in the winter. Parts of it is quiet and not as many people as Dunn so we love it for that. Great with dogs and you go through many terrains and see different flora.

Really a tour de Reinhardt... I’ve done a lot of these trails individually so it was cool to see them all come together. Environment changes a lot throughout the hike, my favorite portion always being the North/West portion of the park. Wouldn’t say it was hard, more like moderate, with some easy (Stream trail portion..lots of kids and strollers) parts. Overall great if you’re looking for a nice long walk with a couple opportunities to climb!

A steep hike for the first mile and a half, but then it flattens out for a great hike and walk.

Great moderate hike. Mostly covered. Pretty crowded on a weekday, but the paths are wide and most everyone wore masks. This area has numerous intersecting trails, so it’s not hard to go off the planned trail. Small parking lot, but can street park on Skyline Blvd.

This was a lovely trail. I did it in reverse so the large hill was at the end. Which was perfect. Woods and lots of shade.

Great hike, super beautiful. Definitely download the map, I missed a turn and ended up adding a mile. There are a lot of turns and trails out there so it’s helpful to know the area!

It's a beautiful hike. Some really beautiful parts. Be sure to download the map as it could be easy to miss a turn. We kept up a solid pace and finished in 2.5hrs.

It seems as if the person who first recorded this hike took a few wrong turns. I did, however, have fun trying to spot them.

I did this trail Aug 1st, 2020. Started at 7:30, plenty of parking spaces. I went in the trail order as outlined here (which I believe is counter clockwise as I went to the right first). It definitely felt like this direction was significantly easier. Felt like most of the first 3 miles was down hill, the next 2 Stream trail) were mostly flat. Madrone was steep but after that it was moderate, mostly flat/down. No way I would describe this trail in this direction as difficult. Pretty but next time I will definitely do it in reverse order. Mileage is accurate. Couple of rocky trails, would have liked my hiking shoes vs trail running shoes on parts.

I love taking long hikes. This one is my longest hike so far. I actually didn’t follow the trails that it says here. I did clockwise, I started in Dunn, Graham, West Ridge, Madrone, French, Chown, Stream, Golden Spikes back to Dunn trail. I read the reviews before I do this hike and it says French trail is better and I think I agree with that. I took Chown trail going to Stream trail because I wanted to see both so I took French and Stream! I recommend taking French trail than Stream trail. I didn’t have signal so I couldn’t see the map So I ended up taking Golden Spikes trail all the way after the stream which is longer. Overall, I did 10miles taking this routes and it took me almost 3 hours. I did it fast because I ran too, I think with the total of 15min run in between that saved me some time and I’m a fast walker and I think that’s why it took me faster than what normal people do.

Loved this trail! Took us 3 hours 15 minutes and we took french trail instead of steam trail which was a better choice. French is gorgeous. Great shade and only crowded at beginning and end of loop overall. Start earlier in day to beat heat and crowds. Will definitely go again!

Big second on what a reviewer said below re taking French trail rather than the suggested Stream Trail route. Stream Trail is paved - so being a hater of paved trails, I actually took the Bridle Trail which goes along side it, but even then you can still see the paved trail right below you, heavily populated by - well, the sort so of people who like paved trails. So, as soon as I had the opportunity I cut over on to French Trail, which was a lovely single track through the redwoods. Overall though I have to say I'm not terribly fond of this preserve - I found it very noisy with highway and plane traffic almost the whole way.

It was a great hiking experience! Lots of shades and some places are no shades. Uphill hiking on canyon trail is short but slope is 45 to 55 degrees. Great for burning calories! I love the stream (no water because no rain) trail . It’s moderate and fun to hike. It was weekdays so due to COVID-19 people were more respectful and using masks. Wider trail. East Ridge was also a fun trail. Restrooms are available but some of them are closed. 7. 5 miles feels almost 8.5 miles hiking. Takes about 3.5 hour with good pacing. Make sure you have bottled water and a few snacks. Overall it was fantastic trail!

Excellent trail. We went counter clockwise. Nicer that way. Plenty of parking at 7 am. More like 8.1 miles but still did well under 3 hours. Need AllTrails map, otherwise you are going to end up on a wrong trail.

6/19/20 Hike: Did the suggested route, except took French trail through Redwood Park instead of Stream Trail. It’s hard to beat French trail if you like a wooded single track.
