Great hike, but definitely more strenuous than this site indicates.

Like others have mentioned, this trail is definitely more moderate than easy but it's such a beautiful hike. You can take your time and really soak the redwoods in while you catch your breath ;)

Beautiful hike, but more moderate than easy. Starting from the visitors center, the hike up the ridge is steep. Left my poles in the car and wish I had them several times. We went to the falls which was barely running but still beautiful. We hiked the nature trail that goes through the redwoods.

Not an easy hike with over 2,000 ft elevation gain.

My husband and I are novice hikers so we thought this trail was more moderate (even difficult at times) than easy. However, I can see where an experienced hiker would find it to be easier than we did.
