They aren't joking about this being a cardio trail, especially the last 1/2 mile heading up to the ridge. The Redwoods are so tall and cool and provide a lot of shade during the hike. Once you get to the ridge you overlook much of the bay area to the south. There was some lingering fog, but still a welcome view after coming out of the forest. Potable water is provided once you reach the ridge, a nice chance to fill up before heading back to the visitor center.
