There are plenty of beautiful trees for cool shade. There are steep obstacles along the way to keep you focused. The trail is well maintained and varies in width from time to time. It can be vast to narrow enough for only one person. Be cautious of the roots and large rocks that are on the trail.

Depending on your pace (ours was a run/jog), it’s a nice, quick, moderate butt-burner workout. Trail is well-kept, beautiful redwoods and eucalyptus trees line the paths. Very dog-friendly.

I love this trail, it’s just right! You can make it short enough or long enough I love how there’s shade threw most of the trail.
