There are plenty of beautiful trees for cool shade. There are steep obstacles along the way to keep you focused. The trail is well maintained and varies in width from time to time. It can be vast to narrow enough for only one person. Be cautious of the roots and large rocks that are on the trail.

Mostly shaded well defined trail with multiple forks. A good 2 hour hike!

Great, varied hike. I agree that the Graham trail was the best part!

Really enjoyed the hike - great views from the TH (which has a lot of parking). Extended the hike on Baccahris trail to West Ridge - also extended to Redwood Peak which was a nice walk but not many views from the actual peak. Graham trail is the best part of the hike. The one downside - was pretty busy for an early Friday

Depending on your pace (ours was a run/jog), it’s a nice, quick, moderate butt-burner workout. Trail is well-kept, beautiful redwoods and eucalyptus trees line the paths. Very dog-friendly.

I love this trail, it’s just right! You can make it short enough or long enough I love how there’s shade threw most of the trail.

Some hills, some flat, some sunny, some shaded. A quick and fun varied terrain hike. There's a picnic area with water fountain complete with dog water bowl!

Nice, easy. Views of the bay and inland. Quaint forest near the city.

Nice shady, well maintained trail perfect for dogs and pregnant ladies. Lots of trees, including beautiful redwoods. If you head right to start the loop then you have an easy beginning and an easy finish with a moderate incline in the middle. We went on a Saturday and it wasn't very crowded.

Only did the short trail for the kids. Next I will conquer the longer harder trail. Great for kids lots of friendly people.

Took 3 of our kids out to see how the 2 year old would tolerate hiking and they all loved it. We saw horses, dogs, cyclist and hikers. Trails were nice and the scenery a nice break from city living. Will definitely come back and do more exploring.

Good trail in a great area with so many options close by to explore. I've done it many times. Even better when i take my dog.

Nice scenic heavy trafficked loop. I headed out on the East Ridge Trail to Philips Loop Trail to Eucalyptus Trail to Stream Trail back to staging area. Great small grove of Redwoods across the trail from the girls'camp.

Good! Nice views, very clear trails (though we somehow missed the turn off to Chown trail from the West Ridge trail)
