Super short and cute hike. It was short enough for my wife to handle despite having some pretty bad pain issues. The bridge was out when we went so be aware that the creek can be hard to cross if you don’t want your feet getting wet. Overall, it’s a nice, short walk in the woods.

Nice place to walk around. Waterfall is not as excited as I expected. Easy trail. All the trees are amazing!

Overall, a short and easy walk through the redwoods. We stopped here on a whim in December. Weather was coolish, but we decided to do the short walk anyway. Took about 30 mins with lots of stops for photos and wildlife viewing.

A really nice hike for me, my daughter and her entire girl scout troop. We also made a little side trip over to tip toe falls! In the warm season bring a bathing suit for a shallow swim at the creek by the seasonal bridge.

The best part about the trail was the swimming hole next to the rock face covered in ferns and mosses...all amidst the redwoods as the trail name suggests. Since we went the day after 4th of July, there was no one around. There's a magic at that spot that makes it more than just the sum of the features, though. You'll just have to go and experience it for yourself.
