The trails oscillate up and down a lot. It seems less daunting than facing a steady uphill like on last half of the hike which is a steady 600 vertical feet uphill over the last 2.5 miles. At the base of the Vista Point detour, there is a placard with information about the flight that crashed there in 1953. A beautiful tree-covered hike, probably a perfect destination for a hot day. Lots of mountain bikers, but the trails are wide enough to give them some space to pass.

Nice moderate trail, almost all in the shade, beautiful redwoods forest. Only downside is there’s heavy bikers traffic, which are coming down fast on the narrow paths.

it's quite easy and a beautiful trail with proper trail paths. it's shaded throughout and has directions for each trail posted at a regular distance.

Very nice, moderate trail. Shaded by redwood trees.
Took 2 hours for the loop including a 15 minute lunch break, met about 15 hikers and 5 bikers.
Parking was easy and plenty.

Perfect summer day hike! Shady canopies of redwood made it a pleasant experience despite the almost 100 degree heat !

Beautiful hike. Did this loop counterclockwise on Memorial Day weekend. Not too crowded, as everyone else was up in Purisma Creek. Beautiful fern and redwood filled trails, very shady thus perfect for a sunny day. More mountain bikers than hikers, but there’s plenty of room to let them pass on the trails. Would highly recommend!

Definitely a very nice trail,
probably ideal for hot days because is very well shaded, pretty good balance for ups and downs, not hard, decent.

Great hike. Well shaded. There were more hikers and bikers than would have liked but there were long stretches where no one could be found. A lot of crisscrossing of other trails so make sure you are aware. All in all great hike.

It's a solid 4, the trails are very popular with mountain bikers so just aware of the cross traffic. The parking is really easy and there's tons of trail signs and posts so you'll never get lost. Enough of a terrain to get a good workout but not too much where it's not impossible.
