Fairly easy trail. Some steep areas. If you are in shape then should be no difficulties. 5 year old did it with me. Dogs are NOT allowed on any "trail" in the park. They can only be on paved roads, campsites, and fire roads. Unless they are a service dog.

LOVED this trail. Very steep in the beginning but it's over quickly and the rest is just gorgeous. Lots of redwoods, lots of ferns, lots of banana slugs!! Once you come out of the short jaunt on the mill ox TRAIL it spits you out onto the Butano fire road which you follow all the way up to sweeping views of the redwood forest and on a clear day you can see the ocean. It's quite spectacular. Follow the Jackson Flats Trail back down through the redwoods. It's very cool and serene, lots of moss and tiny babbling creeks. LOVED this hike and the woman at the front kiosk was very helpful and friendly. Parking was 10$ and well worth it. Wear some layers if it's an overcast day because the redwoods make for a chilly damp environment.
