We just did Purisma Creek Loop and it was great. Very flat and slow incline, which is good because we have bad knees. Great redwoods and was very quiet, not a lot of other hikers on a Saturday morn. Would highly recommend if looking for not steep inclines thru redwoods.

For Noobs!
This is.a BEAUTIFUL hike! BUT if you are not looking for a MONSTER steep hill workout then please Do Not take the trial from Northridge to Whittmore Gulch UP Harkins Ridge! This is VERY Steep and challenging for the new/average hiker. IF you are a pro and want an AWESOME challenge this is the hill workout for you!

I loved this trail. There were giant redwoods, ferns, butterflies, tons of shade, and a good variety of easy and tough trail terrain.
