Scenic, easy trail. Lots on bike traffic on weekends.

This is a great hike to get outside after work. It's a short loop that is shaded and mostly level. You start with a flat hike through the trees on a wide path that is heavily trafficked with runners and bikers. Midway there is a short uphill climb as you get onto the Big Trees trail. This has some pretty views through the redwoods, but also some less sceenic areas that parallel close to the road and through some picnic areas.

Perfect place to escape the Walnut Creek heat and get the pup some exercise without working too hard! Easy, shaded, dog friendly loop trail.

Hiked with 3 kids (1.5yo,3.5yo,5.5yo) - older two walked the whole way. Mostly under canopy. LOTS of cyclists (a little too fast esp with the kids around). Also lots of dogs (on and off-leash). Took about an hour. Easy and ample parking on the side of the road and directly in front of the trailhead (right past Roberts park entrance).

Less crowded but not as pretty as nearby Redwood Park.

I have always enjoyed hiking in coastal redwoods. The red woods look beautiful when sun starts to set and sun rays hit the trees at and angle and light up selective areas in the woods providing excellent photography opportunities!!!

Loved it! Went as a solo hiker... not a problem at all. The Bay Area's beauty never ceases to amaze me.

Nice mostly flat trail. The trees keep you in shade most of the time. Only saw a few wildflower blooms.

Beautiful! Joaquin Miller Park is one of my favorites. It really doesn't get much better than this.

This is a great trail for beginners or for people looking for a quick hike. The trail is short and not too hilly. Big Trees trail is not as well traveled as Sequoia Bayview. You can also mountain bike these trails.
