Saw Big Ben

Pipeline trail is all paved and kind of an easier end of a moderate rating. We ended up with switching to river trail to eagle creek trail and make a loop and come back out. Those trails are primarily for mountain biking. Don’t forget the bug spray when you reached the higher elevation part of eagle creek trails.

Fart touch galore

This trail had a lot of fart touch going on..

Beautiful, easy hike. Lots of water still. Feels like ur in Jurassic Park lol. You can easily extend it and add a more difficulty by way of elevation gain and distance. Small parking lot and the trails get crazy crowded with big groups- beware.

Beautiful views, a couple tough hills. Great path for dog walkers. Henry Cowell is a gem!

One of the prettiest hikes I’ve done! I went on a Monday to beat the crowds and still shared the trail with lots of people probably with the same idea, but it wasn’t too packed. I took the Fall Creek trail to The Ridge tail and it dumps you back off higher on the Fall Creek trail. The Ridge trail was mostly uphill and a little too strenuous for my kids, but after some complaining we got it done. The scenery can’t be beat! We saw lots of nature including a baby snake and banana slugs.

wow! great trail with lots of trees.

Beautiful trail in Fall Creek! The lime kilns are somewhat uneventful, but the actual hike up to them is gorgeous. This is moderate because of the fallen trees and other obstacles, otherwise it is somewhat easy, with a mostly wide trail & relatively low elevation change.

Went clockwise for this hike. Took about 3.5 hours to complete. The trails are beautiful, lots of different variety of plants and trees. Most of the trail is along the river. Note: this trail is not at the main Henry C. Park., you have to drive to the other section of the park. Overall decent workout and lovely scenery.

I would rate as easy, very beautiful !

Ideal hiking difficulty — either direction you choose on the loop is more or less ascending until about the halfway point, and then it’s a good descent. I did the loop clockwise, and luckily I ran into people who had already made a wrong turn at the 5-mike mark to put me on the correct path and prevent me from hiking an extra mile or two. Hiking along the creek was pleasant. The AllTrails map is a must have!

Awesome trail. It's actually 9 miles and if you take wrong turns like we did then it becomes 10 miles :D But don't worry it will still be very beautiful and enjoyable. The trail runs adjacent to the Fall Creek and that adds to the beauty of the trail. There are a lot of fallen trees and path going under those trees or go over them. The trail can get confusing since there are places where multiple diversions are possible, so make sure to keep a Google maps or All Trails map on so that you don't get lost. There are a few small waterfalls too on the trail.

Beautiful trail. Moderate. Closer to 9 miles than 8 miles according to my Apple Watch GPS. Took about 4.5 hours to complete including a few rest breaks. Beautiful walk in the redwoods. This trail passes by “Big Ben” giant redwood. The trail is washed away for about a 10 yard section on the eastern fall creek section of the loop but if it is passable by just making your way across the large tree and rocks that are over the creek.

Great, easy hike that puts you among the trees right out of the parking lot. The trees tower above you, it's difficult not to take pictures around every turn! You will see the Mother and Father tree (with signage and a description of their size), as well as a few trees that have been burned out in the middle, allowing people to step inside the resulting "cave." Great wide gravel path the whole way. I went with a 3 year old and a stroller and both handled it great! The parking lot gets crowded very quickly however, even in January! So, arrive early or feel free to continue driving to the picnic areas and parking there. Highly recommend this (or any) of the trails here!

Beautiful trail. I’d say it’s more on the easy side of moderate. There are a number of down trees so we weren’t able to make it to the turn around point listed here since our baby carriers made it too tricky. I’d definitely come out to this area again. Looks like there’s miles of trails we can connect for this.

Nice trail. Despite others opinion, “moderate” is an accurate description. Anyone not agile would have difficulty. The trail has not been cleared of debris from spring rains that caused havoc in the area with landslides (portion of trail re-routed) and many trees to maneuver over and/or under. The trail follows the stream most of the time. Thus, the sounds of water rushing thru the rocks and logs make for an enjoyable hike. We walked up to the Barrel Hill Area and the trail and flora was much the same with more distance to the hike.
