Sunset trail was pretty difficult on a mountain bike, but we went up to big trees and enjoyed that part.

Should have read more reviews . So many mountain bikers. And no masks. Writing this during the Covid19 pandemic. Of the ~100 mountain bikers we saw I'd say 10 announced themselves and 5 were wearing masks. No social distancing here. I'd give it an above average risk of getting Covid. Brought the kids here for a hike. Won't be doing that again till there's a vaccine. But the place is gorgeous!

Very nice trail. Very shady which was great on a hot sunny day. Only downside is that the trails are poorly labeled so I had to constantly look at my AllTrails app

Lots of trees and plants. Plenty of shade. Narrow trails with mountain bikers frequently riding in both directions.

A pleasant and easy hike, very shady. A little incline but not tough on my bad knee! A couple narrow spots but for the most part the trail is wide.

Sunday late morning hike, CCW, so many mountain bikers -- would not recommend having young children or animals off leash (even if the trail says no bikes allowed, they are still plowing down the trail).

So many mountain bikes. Not fun to share this narrow trail with them. There's an awesome big tree in the meadow though.

Nice trail. Mostly shaded, lots of redwoods. Full loop is closer to 4 miles exactly.
