This loop using the East Ridge and Stream trails, pairs a vigorous hike along an exposed ridge with a secluded downhill ramble in the shade of tall redwoods, an unbeatable combination. Views from the East Ridge Trail are superb, and the regional redwood forest along Redwood Creek is majestic. Water is available at the trailhead and at Skyline Gate and various points along the Stream Trail.

Very nice dog-friendly hike. The redwoods and groves on the Stream Trail portion are top notch.
