Hike seemed very pleasant. But, must warn about few adventurous routes we took. There is one deviation where we need to go below and cross over a branch. Instead, we climbed up a non safe path which was leading to nowhere. So we had to comeback. Otherwise, it was just an amazing feeling in the woods.

If you go up the steep end, you'll get a good workout, but it's a beautiful hike! There's a point where the trail drops off (Barrel Mill area) due to, what looks like, a landslide or something. Go down into the creek and walk across the large, downed trees to get back onto the trail. This is the only reason I gave it a 4. Also, it ended up 13 miles from the parking lot. That was using 'map my hike' app. Don't know how accurate it is, but it took me 3 1/2 - 4 hours.

We intend to take fall creek to another trail and loop around, but we got a late start. We ended up hiking the fall creek trail out and back again. Dogs are not allowed and there is a lot of poison oak, however it's completely avoidable if you stay on the trail. Gorgeous redwoods and ferns all alongside a creek. There were a couple of good inclines but spaced enough apart that by the time you get to one, you've forgotten about the last. The trail is blocked due to a landslide at one point, but it's easy enough to circumvent. Beautiful trail, can't wait to try it again.
