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.

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.

GORGEOUS. This is part of a huge network of trails, and if you take the Fir trail all the way down and continue, you run into a sweet creek and waterfall.
