This little out and back could easily be made into a loop that is still doable for kids. Good section of forest with interesting scenery for such a short spur. Also, this is one of the best spots on the creek to hang out/play/explore for kids and dogs alike. There is a picnic table on the far side of the creek. Be very careful crossing the creek in the wet season, it can get very deep in places.

This is a beautiful park. Within minutes of the main parking you can stroll into redwoods and have the kids play in the creek. As you wind your way into the forest along the creek you can cross it many times rock hopping. Longer hikes can be had here going for maple falls which we did once. I love this place.
