Wonderful trail! Great scenery and most of the route is shaded by tall trees, which made the hike comfortable on a warm day. As others mentioned, many hikers had off-leash dogs and this didn't seem to be a problem.

Beautiful trail that has a little bit of everything, including many groves of redwood trees. I ended up taking a shortcut up the Redwood Peak Trail to get to the top of the peak. That was quite challenging. Peak was a bit of a letdown without much of a view but felt good to get to the top. Moderate number of folks on the trail including one horse and lots of dogs.

Really love this trail. Beautiful walk through redwoods and although I don’t generally like intense inclines, I think they’re fun on this trail. Can be muddy in the spring. Make sure you know your route since there are a bunch of connecting trails that you can accidentally get on. Lots of off leash dogs.
