This trail is in a redwood forest. It was mostly shaded and cool even in the middle of August. Some part of the trail was steep but general was easy. We started at the Redwood Bowl Staging area parking lot. We followed the West Ridge Trail, Redwood Peak Trail, then the Stream Trail. We then climbed up to the Mill Trail, French Trail, the Madrone Trail and finally back to the West Ridge Trail for a total distance of 6 miles and 1106 ft elevation.

A beautiful walk. I did it counterclockwise and there was one tough (steep) up section. Beautiful light through the trees. Not too crowded especially after going up. Don't miss the cute little Redwood Peak outcropping of rocks.
