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.

Amazing hike if you go down to the bottom of the fir trail and climb back up. Almost 1000 feet of elevation over 1 Mile. Very challenging without stopping but great for training the lungs. Also the sandstone rock is amazing. I went on a Friday when it was 100 degrees so I had the whole trail to myself. Bring plenty of water as it was the first time I finished my 3 liter bladder right as I was walking to the car. Also the trail head is across the street down 0.1 miles from Skeggs Parking lot.
