Really nice well maintained trail going through various forests. There’s a good amount of inclines and declines to give a nice workout but not too much to wipe you out afterwards. About 2/3 of the trail is fairly shaded and it’s mostly sandy/rocky, could be slippery without proper footwear. Quite a bit of traffic so definitely wear a mask

Perfectly lovely trail. Good mix of steep/flat, shade/sun, and forest/Mountain views. Would be an excellent trail for running. Knocked off 1 star bc dog owners: PLEASE pick up your dogs poop. It’s not enough to just put it in a plastic bag and leave that on the trail...kind of defeats the purpose don’t you think? We saw at least 30, probably more like 50 poop bags on the trails.

This trail is pretty mellow. Once you get up a ways there are a lot of trees and the shade is nice. In most places the trails are wide enough for social distancing and most people respect it. There are a lot of dogs off leash even with signs everywhere stating to keep them leashed. I went off trail quite a few times and found some areas that were more narrow and steep and ended up making my 4 mile a hike a 7.5 mile hike.

Got lost many times, but that’s on me for not looking at signs. Recorded map looks like modern art.

Once you hike up from the clearing, you get more of the lost-in-the-woods experience, and I love the mix of redwoods and oaks. Lovely mix of feeling surrounded by woods, and enjoying great views. It's mildly challenging on some uphill slopes, but not too rough. We saw alot of dogs, only a few on leash, and a few cyclists, too. This would be a great early morning trail after or during your 1st cup of coffee!

Clocked 600ft elevation, 4.1 miles, 1 hour and 30 minutes round trip. People were generally respectful of social distancing and wearing masks. Trails are wide and well maintained with good stretches is shade! Overall very enjoyable.

Hiking

People suck at social distancing. Meeting up with friends who are not in your household for a hike or a run is not social distancing. Hiking in a large group spread out all over the trail is not social distancing. Walking two or three abreast or down the middle of the trail so others can’t pass at a safe distance is not social distancing. 6 feet people. You’re going to ruin it for everyone and they’re going to shut down the trails.

Very pretty trail with many dogs! You encounter all the redwoods in the shade. Only downside was seeing some poop bags left here and there along the trail. Throw away your dog poop, people!

I love this trail. A lot of my stellar first impression may have to do with the fact that I went hiking on it during the Superbowl, which means the experience was so serene and quiet, but honestly in general it's a lovely trail. Plenty of dogs, and you have to watch out for mountain bikers, but most people are very considerate. There are not many breathtaking altitude vistas, but if you keep your eyes peeled in the first half going clockwise, you can see some nice views if the weather's clear. It starts out uphill on an open plain, then you get into the brush. The path is comfortably wide in most places which is really nice. The redwood and eucalyptus trees provide plenty of shade and dappled sunlight. My friend and I took a detour up the Redwood Peak Trail to Redwood Peak, which had some neat boulders to climb around on (but not much of a view). Also, watch out for horse poop! It's a great trail for exercise without it being too strenuous.

A little boring and heavily trafficked, but it’s fine for a family with small kids or someone wanting a casual stroll.

Great for trail running. Easy follow trail. Very dog friendly with on leash areas clearly marked. Habitat conservation areas where dogs must stay on trail.

Beautiful, easy trail with some hills. A few bicyclists and a little horse manure. No leashes required. I’m an athletic 49 year old female and it took my dog and me 1 hr 20 min from the parking lot. Perfect!

A fun run with pretty views. I started early morning and it was great. I can see where parts would feel hot and where the trail could be crowded on sunny days. I recommend and early start To avoid that... and bug spray. I would run this again or hike it with the kids.

I absolutely LOVE this hike!! A great workout & stunning views. Great for shade and sun! Very dog friendly, off leash is legal and welcome here. I’ve never seen a walker with more than the legal limit of dogs (6) & all have been under voice control.

As someone else said, it was the perfect blend of sunny and shady! A little toasty in the sun and chilly in the shade, but exactly what I needed. Saw a few poop bags along the way, and I guess it’s a popular destination for professional dog walkers, cause we saw 2 or 3. Not saying it was then that left them behind, but please pack your doggy bags out with you!

A great weekday morning hike! Took me about 2 hours, including stops for lunch, bathroom, and gazing at a banana slug. It mostly weaves through bay and oak forest along a ridge, with moments in the redwoods as well. On this Monday morning I saw lots of dog walkers but only one mountain biker.
