Very well shaded, not too steep, lovely redwoods, not too crowded, paved trail, on the easier side of moderate, overall beautiful relaxed hike

This trail climbs somewhat aggressively for the first 1.2 miles- I had to take several short breaks to catch my breath! I proceeded up Madrone Knoll (clockwise) eventually looping back to the Redwood Springs trail. It’s climb, flat, climb, flat all the way up. Once you reach Redwood Springs it’s mostly downhill. The entire trail is mostly shady. Arrive before 10 am to get a parking spot. If the lot is full, the trail is at capacity. I went on a Tuesday morning and probably encountered 7 people/pairs of hikers, and it felt very safe. Love this walk in the woods!
