Just awesome.
Lots of spider webs, plants very close to the trail because of the TRAIL CLOSED sign on the Pomponio trail (which we ignored - nothing wrong there) so I guess people avoided it.
It was a little bit more than 8.8 miles, about 10 by the end but worth it.

Quiet as quiet gets. Bit soft, muddy after the rains but nothing slippery. Hard to take in the beauty when you you have to look down so as to avoid squishing a banana slug though:-)

Old Haul Road was closed for a stretch when we went in late August. We broke away from the suggested loop and explored the other trails in the park. Really quite trail--scarcely traveled, which meant we had to walk through some spider webs. Lots of second growth redwoods as the area looks like it was an old logging site.
