You have to obtain a lock code from the rangers station to use this trail. You can also get a backcountry camping permit from them as well to camp off to the side of the trail.

Whew. The hike out is a bear. Great view of large redwoods made it worth it. Quite a few mosquitos at both the trailhead and throughout the trail. I carried our two year old in the pack to save time. Saw a lot of tired and completely asleep kids who were on their way out.

This trail was our first stop during our Redwoods vacation. You must obtain a permit from the visitor's center before heading out on the hike. You'll understand why the park limits the number of cars for this hike when you get to the trail head. It's a packed parking area. The trail itself is not very difficult and the loop at the bottom has many points of interest. There are benches for those that need to rest their feet. Going back to the top of the trail head after you're done hiking the loop is moderate, but very doable for all different skill levels.

From here you can find Hyperion. Was tricky, but you can figure it out if you do some research. Be nice to the tallest tree in the world when you get there. ✌

Nice trail. The walk back up is a bit challenging for those not used to uphill but is definitely doable.

Several switchbacks down. And then some more elevation loss. The loop is really cool and the scenery is amazing. The climb back up makes you sweat a little, but overall an amazing hike.
