I started from Panoramic Hwy near Mt. Home Inn, turn right on Redwood Creek Trail to Muir Woods. Taking Muir Woods Road, turn right to Deep Park Fire Road, Dipsea Trail up to Cardiac Hill. Visited the Veteran's Bench and enjoyed the view. Continued on the Old Mine Trail up to Pantoll Station, cross Panoramic Hwy, and hike up on Simons Trail, Laurel Dell Fire Road, and Northside Trail. Take the Secret Trail up the Verna Dunshee Trail. From there you can go up the East Peak. In return, I took the Fern Creek Trail, Railroad Grade Fire Road, Hogback Road to complete the loop.

Gradually up from Fire road easy for advanced hikers can be challenging for others.. we came back from fern trail and boot Jack one which made it longer and challenging.. that downhill was quick and tough topped with 250ft up again at the end.. not a hike for beginners

Up Dipsea to Steep Ravine to Pantoll, then Alpine/Bootjack to the fire road and Fern Creek to the top. Way down took the fire road to Rock Springs trail, saw the Mountain Theater and wiggled from there through the open fields to Matt Davis and down.

Nice way to get to East Peak, starting at the Rock Springs parking lot. Took Fern Creek trail on the way back down - quite a technical section. I think I would have preferred to hike that up rather than down.

I mistakenly thought it would go to the peak via south it’s an easy traverse trail across the west hill. Nicely covered on a hot summer day. Good for families.
