Perfect 12 mile loop! Through carbon canyon and the redwood tree grove, back around to the top of ridge crest, and down Bastanchury to Home!

I saw 2 rattlesnakes and a coyote. Great for bike riding or a big hiking group. For a small group definitely don’t recommend. I sure did not feel safe.

Sunscreen and water are your friends. Milk was a bad choice!

VERY overgrown! Dangerous when there’s traffic. Hurts like hell when going down hill & get whipped by all the brush/branches.

The northern potion of this loop was closed, so it's essentially an out and back. 9.7 miles round trip from carbon canyon parking. very wide trail, very flat for first 90%. Not great for wildflowers, most of the area is non-native invasive species (mustard, hemlock, tree of heaven) so was disappointed in that aspect. Overall, wouldn't bother coming back. Good trail if you're a beginner looking to step up to more challenging trails as the elevation isn't that bad at all.
