If you have dogs the only option is to follow the pathed path the entire trail- it's not allowed to cross over to other trails. There's a few steep hills for a good viewpoint at "overlook bench". For the $10 day use fee it was modest

All paved and lots of other trails to explore into. Really cool river spots to checkout right off the road.

Took this trail to get to a redwoods trail by making the process longer for the .8 mile redwoods loop inside Henry Cowell, having parked on Hwy 9. It was a decent 2 mile addition, bit once we were in park, discovered more scenic trails that would have been better to extend the redwood loop. Decent trail to avoid paying the state park entrance fees.

Great paved trail for dogs. Not a place to go if you are looking for solitude. The redwoods & scenery are beautiful!

Pipeline is the easiest trail in the park. It's paved most of the way and pet friendly

There are highlights on this trail and it's a very nice family friendly hike. Worth a visit, but would probably get boring on repeat visits.

I love this place, I went here frequently when Iived in SC. Start on pipeline and follow the river; I always did this trail to the overlook because you can bring your dog, but nowhere else in the park unfortunately. Not challenging but great times among beautiful giant redwoods!

This is a paved road just outside of the redwoods and paralleling the river. Not as pretty and majestic as the redwood section but still a good walk. Dogs are welcome on this trail
