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.

Nice shady, well maintained trail perfect for dogs and pregnant ladies. Lots of trees, including beautiful redwoods. If you head right to start the loop then you have an easy beginning and an easy finish with a moderate incline in the middle. We went on a Saturday and it wasn't very crowded.
