Great hike. I'm glad we had cell service or I think we would have gone off trail pretty easily. The last part of the loop is a steep decline that will leave your thighs a little wobbly.

This trail is great! From the programmed location in this app walk down until you see the main sign, instead of staying right on the main trial like everyone else look for the small trailhead for Barbara Springs trail if you want a nice booty hike straight up! Once you hit the fire road turn right and follow the trail until you see the trail marker for Dawn Falls trail on the right. A nice less traveled alternative

Very nice! Limited street parking. Most of the trail is in the woods, although at the top there are some more open stretches with fabulous views. On your way down, don’t miss the Barbara springs trail, it’s easy to just walk past it and leave the loop. Some steep parts, and also a pretty little waterfall. Creature sitings: woodpecker, spiders, other hikers, and bikers.

Great trail, VERY limited parking so go early or on weekdays. Pretty flat until you hit a few steep switchbacks shortly before the falls. The falls were just trickling today but it’s gorgeous in the canyon with the redwoods, ferns, and moss so still worth it. I did the loop up past the falls to the left, it switchbacks up to a wide fire road which also had some great views of the tree covered hills and the bay. Finished my loop by coming down the Barbara Springs Trail which was very steep & would be tough if muddy.

It’s easy with kids, our son who is 4yo has been able to hike all the way and back. Parking can be a bit tricky, we had to park 5min away from the entrance.

Very nice hike on a sunny day. Trail was mostly dry, with a few small muddy spots. Wild flowers beginning to bloom.
