Love that this trail has a leash-free zone for dogs. It’s very nice and shady and can be moderately challenging. The last half of the trail was easy so you have enough energy for the rest of the hike. Would absolutely come here again and more!

The only reason I’m giving it 4 stars is because I went super late in the day and had to navigate in the complete dark with the light on my phone. Moderate trail with decent incline, great scenery and wild life. I was able to see turkeys and rabbits. From my pictures you can see where I was walking with day light. I enjoyed the trail till that point, however the sun went down and it was completely dark. Started to lowkey panic Felt like I was in the Blair witch project lol. Overall still enjoyed the hike and was happy to see civilization. I would recommend this trail. During the day.

I rated this trail a “4 Star” because it started from a fun day mode to a survival fun night mode. In the beginning of the day I saw many rabbits and turkeys. Throughout the night time it was a tricky situation, yet felt as if I was in a movie “The Evil Dead” moment.. Me feeling like Ash Williams by helping out my freind throughout our survival journey. Overall, it was fun!.

HikingGreat!

The towering Redwoods on either side of the Canyon along trail is such a gift to experience. French and Mill offer a lot of elevation changes and some nice Oak groves.

In the future, would have started with the French leg which is more up and down than the rest of the trail, but less populated due to that arduousness. Stream finishes with a more gradual incline and a wider trail.

A bit longer than stated. I would recommend doing the French trail section first as that part is harder/steeper. Really lovely and shaded.
