This is a fun moderate hike to Redwood Canyon. Starts through a beautiful oak grove. A lot of wildflowers in bloom in the spring, and a small patch of Redwood trees and ferns with that incredible smell you only get in redwood groves.

A beautiful hike, I loved passing the different topologies found while doing this easy to moderate short trail. We started going to the left and uphill, we passed a beautiful trail with a lot of autumn colors and a very beautiful view from above, then walking the redwood canyon is like walking on a small piece of autumn colorful heaven all the way to a stony beautiful small river.

Very pleasant short hike with a changing environment. With plenty of rocks in the creek unless I'd seen the sign at the start I wouldn't have even realised there were seasonal foot bridges normally.

Diverse hike on the way up with some great view points and challenging climbs. Hiking down was a little mundane but very peaceful.

Was hoping to get up on top of the ridge more for views. Lots of shaded hiking and a few spots along a narrow trail with big cliffs. Didn't realize that I'd have to go into the raging creek about 2-3' 4x to follow trail. Lucky it was warm out.
