It took us 3,5 hours to finish this trail. There is a small waterfall on your way, but it’s nice.

really lovely trail. pretty muddy this time of year but we arrived at 10am to find it nice and quiet. we climbed slippy rock and it was by definition, pretty slippy, but fairly easy to climb for those with a good level of fitness

I would say this is more of a long walk than a hike. It's nice and quiet. There are a few moments where you'll need to make sure you stay on the right path, as 1 or 2 of the poles with the path names are missing them. I'd suggest making sure to download the map from here on AllTrails before heading up to the park.

A bit muddy this time of year, so I’d recommend some footwear with some grip. Other than that it’s a great trail through some amazing redwoods. Pretty highly trafficked on the weekend, so if you’re looking for something more remote this may not be for you

Hiked counter clockwise. Beautiful day. Muddy and slick in few spots. Not many people on the trail the first 2 miles at 9:00a, lots of parking availability at that time.

Gorgeous hike through redwoods and quiet backwoods groves. Sempervirens Falls was pretty. Extremely muddy in some sections though. I was slipping around even with good boots and poles. Worth the trek though.

Beautiful hike! Lots of gigantic, gorgeous redwood trees. However, the first 1/3 of the hike is along a road so it breaks the illusion of being submerged in pure nature. Also, the trails are pretty muddy and it was pretty cold so I would suggest wearing, at the very least, some trail runners and a warm jacket. If you're wearing road running shoes with no tread it could be difficult to get through some of the muddier parts.

Nice hike, not much elevation gain but muddy because of all the recent rain! The trees are lovely with the fog.

We took this option as a diversion from the main Sempervirens waterfall trail. The connector trail is technically closed, but a little climbing over downed trees will reward you with a nice secluded hike. It runs on the other side of the access road along Union Creek. Not heavily trafficked and in great condition, this trail passes a couple of campgrounds in the distance and many, many redwoods along the way. There were minor trail maintenance issues where trees had recently fallen and were still lying across the trail.

Fun trail! About 4.5-5 miles roundtrip. I went during the rainy season (Dec) but found the trail slightly muddy/squishy, not bad. I went counterclockwise and found it useful when going up slippery rock vs down. No major lookout points but who cares when you have amazing things all round. Would do again! Parts of the trail are closed and some trees down but nothing too crazy. Just follow the detours.

Nice brisk Black Friday hike. 40 degrees cold at start with some rain. Nice and peaceful despite over flowing parking situation so I started in the end of parking. A great deal of path runs parallel to road so some car noise disturbance.

Nice trail, very flat most of the way, one section with some fun smooth rocks to walk down. Clockwise is best so the falls are at the end of the hike.

Nice hike. Elevation was easy to handle. Drive into the park as scary.

very nice trail for an easy Sunday, not strenuous at all (if you go clockwise on the loop). parts of the hike was through a paved road which felt a little weird, but otherwise it's a nice little shaded trail!

$10 to park, go clockwise. Not shaded from Dool to Meteor Trail, but the rest is very shaded and cool through the basin.

Not exactly the wilderness experience we were expecting. Even though the trail was lovely, we couldn't get into it because it ran along the road.

The redwoods are stunning and the trail was well marked/maintained. What I wish we knew before we went is that you MUST park at the information center and all hikes must start from that point. Other starting points for other hikes in this park are reserved for campers only, apparently. Therefore, you are somewhat limited in your trail options. It is the time of year when mosquitoes are out in full force, but they seemed extra prevalent on this hike. It is true that you walk along roads for part of the hike, but they are roads that only lead to campsites, not main roads, so there wasn’t a lot of car traffic to see/hear. Despite all of this, I really did enjoy the trail which I agree is moderate (although on the easier side).

The trail was pretty moderate to easy. The waterfall was pretty but the trail was along side of the road almost the whole time. We had to walk threw a few camp sights right next to tents. As well as ended up walking threw a parking lot with trash cans mid hike.
