Great hike, lots to see and really interesting topography. Way too much horse poop on the trail, though. About every couple hundred yards we had to dodge a fresh pile. I'll probably avoid horse-friendly trails in the future. I agree with another review that suggests taking the route counter-clockwise to avoid doing the long final climb without shade.

Take this 8 mile loop counterclockwise to avoid steepest climb and totally exposed grassland at the 8 mile mark. Otherwise, very shady and beautiful redwood hike. Wear long pants because the trail is not very well-maintained and there was a lot of grass brushing against legs. Lots of spiderwebs, banana slugs, centipedes, lizards and a very neat looking broken down old shack. Great way to spend the morning!

moderate to easy trail, 3.5 hours for two decently in shape weekly hikers. highly recommend!
