West ridge and Steam trail are both wide and busy. French is lower and in denser redwoods.

Stream trail segment is great with beautiful redwoods and well maintained. West Ridge Trail is much less appealing. It’s pretty crowded and the trail needs some love. Also, I would suggest walking this in reverse order to what All Trails indicates due to the gradient. Not really child friendly

Stream trail and Fern Trail were beautiful. Nice mostly mild descent for all of Stream Trail. I only got a read of about ~600 ft elevation gain on Fern trail though - I didn’t clock much more on my activity tracker after... so not quite sure how it’s 1200 ft elevation. West Ridge was HIGHLY trafficked - not a great place to get 6 ft of distance from others. Next time might pack a picnic for the many picnic benches around.

Beautiful hike, lots of trees, and a bit hilly. The Fern Trail is great for social distancing but the West ridge trail not so much as it is crowded.

Stream and west ridge trails, smaller trails for the loop backs. Great hike, mostly covered by trees. Cool temperatures. it does have some pretty decent stretches of uphill that can be strenuous.

Delightful trail, specially the Fern Trail and the Stream Trail. Good balance of shade and sun. It gets really muddy in the Winter. Not now, though.

Nice walk with some good ascents/descents. There weren’t too many people out, which was nice. My favorite part was Fern Trail for its relative solitude (and no bikes)!
