Wonderful long hike through a leafy forest, you're covered pretty much the whole time. Some highlights include a broken down 50's car that nature has reappropriated, wildflowers, lots and lots of redwoods, and Peter's creek. Saw about a half dozen salamanders swimming in there, trouts too. We chose to stay overnight at the trail camp about 3 miles in and did the rest of the hike the next day, which I highly recommend - you'll have more time to enjoy the sights and sounds. Trail camp is within a redwood grove and is enchanting. Highly recommend!
