A pleasant mostly-shady forest hike around the two ridges bordering the Armstrong redwood grove.

Challenging ish start but nice crest and a quick downslope to some pretty dang big redwoods.
Lots of contact with roads and stuff so it isn't like being way out there but it's a great hike with good variety.

How long does this one take, for a moderately experienced hiker? Looking to make a plan with some others. Thanks!

We about died on the steep incline of the trail, but so did all the other people from what we saw! So at least there was something to laugh at - and the views from the top we certainly pretty, but not spectacular. However, our descent was marvelous (partly because it was downhill) and we found so many redwoods to stand in. There was still some active creeks, and we wish we had come earlier when the rains were still active to see it all in its full glory

One of my favorite trails... I've been doing this loop once a week for nearly 4 months, and I love all the uphills!
