Corralitos, California Map

One of my favorite local parks due to its unique charms, spectacular views and wildflowers, and extreme dog friendliness. Plenty of parking and you’re likely to have it to yourself. The redwood lined canyon on the north side is very ethereal and special.

The Milliron Loop is no longer a loop but an out and back spur due to a trail closure, but very worth it to see the gigantic albino redwood! It’s a wonderful, dog friendly forest with fun trails that offer a great workout.

Special spot in a special forest. Extremely dog friendly and great wildflowers. Wonderful views.

fun site. great view.

This is a great park. Very unique in that it has many "decorations" left by hikers, like carved statues. mailboxes full of useful items. drinking water for dogs and people and lots of places to sit and relax. There is a beautiful view of Pajaro valley along the Byrne trail. It's kind of hard to get to because the road getting there is long, narrow, windy and rough in spots. There's plenty of parking and this is a lightly frequented park and not many cars on that challenging road. The park has a lot of different trails and dogs are welcome. no bikes though.

Great trail! This is our second time hiking it. The first time, we had to cut it short due to starting late and having to leave early. Today, we had all day... We started counter clock wise, so we got the steep decline at the end. Next time we’ll do it the other way. My 7 year old had no issues keeping up. Plus, it’s super dog friendly, which is huge for us!

shady and good height gain

Great dog friendly trail!

Do the loop anticlock wise if you want to take it a little easier on your self.
Hot during summer so I would recommend doing it in wintertime.
Overall a decent trail.

4/26/2018 Columbine, heather, sticky monkey flower, trillium, Solomon’s seal, salmonberry and wild blackberry and strawberry, mints, nettles, wood violets, miner’s lettuce, I could go on and on! Everything is blooming right now so get out there! Great off leash dog spot and never too crowded, especially on weekdays. All very uphill, but there are some spectacular views of the bay, Monterey peninsula, Santa Lucia Mountains, and from certain parts of the Pajaro hills.

Not the easiest place to find, but the hiking was pleasant and pretty easy.

I love these trails. I've been on all I think. Something for every mood.
Do it in the morning and you seldom see anyone. In the afternoon the lot fills and it is not as wonderful for me.

It’s like 70% uphill. Right from the get go but it’s a great little hike. Sweet views of Santa Cruz county

Moderate hike and that’s a very generous review bc I was also carrying my daughter the entire walk in my back. Overall very beautiful and not busy at all.

There are a lot of trails here for such a condensed area. All of the trails are good and there is good elevation gain.

Great trail. Challenging first 1.8 miles but great shade. Add the bay view trail just past the yurts to add another Mile or so

This is such a fun hike. So many things to explore and find with all the offerings people leave. It never disappoints.

Great to start on Sprig trail and return via Blackhawk and Ridge trail. The other way is of course a little easier

Monday, May 29, 2017

We aimed to hike the Ridge Trail to Sprig trail loop, opting to take the Blackhawk Canyon trail at the top of the ridge to enjoy the stream. We were happy we went up the Ridge Trail and descended on the Sprig Trail as they were both very steep ascents with the Sprig trailing seeming to be the more challenging. The blackhawk trail was STUNNING. Short but genuinely the most beautiful portion of the trek. There are some views from the Ridge trail and non from Sprig. At the top, you rim campsites which really detracted from the experience. Overall, I'm happy we did it for the workout and the portion of redwoods on the blackhawk trail that were unforgettable. I agree that it's moderate and enjoyed the workout.
