This pleasant route offers, cool redwood canyons that transition to either mixed evergreen forest or chaparral as one travels up the drier, warmer ridges. There are views toward the San Mateo Coast, intriguing sandstone formations, and even a grove of old-growth redwoods. Trail are closed seasonally for biking, check before you depart.

Solid P'nsula Hike. Easy to find trail head however parking lot fills up. DONT take the spur (more later). Mostly covered - trail in good condition - only one I saw on the trail at 7AM were a ton of mountain bikers - nice guys but some of the trails are really narrow for two. I took the spur that is on the original map - dont do it. Straight down, nothing at the bottom and coming up wasnt easy. Keeping it from a 5 star - no real views

Great hike. Shady most the way. Mountain bikers frequently the back half. What goes down must come up!! :-)

I pleasant enough walk in the forest, and perfect for a casual morning / afternoon hike. I wouldn't recommend taking the southern spur: there was nothing but a dusty trail down there, and walking back up wasn't particularly exciting.

There are many different trails you can take, but each trail is pretty long. However, it is a challenge to hike any trail you choose.. The lower the altitude you get to, the harder it gets to get back up. You definitely feels the burns in your muscles, and you sweat like never before.
Overall, it just a beautiful trail period. The sounds of the trees, the birds, the waterfalls, and the wind it is all very great to enjoy. There are mean old mosquitoes, bug repellent is a must. Take plenty of water. Make you sure you enjoy this hike. Can't wait to go back at it, again!!! I love to enjoy nature.
