So nice on a hot day!! Very shady and opportunities to take their trails and extend the hike. Be aware of mountain bikers!

Good for a run

Super step first half on tres sendas to redwood peak. Easy open kinda boring back half through west ridge. I want to go to Chabot science center!

Really fun hike that took us under 2 hours. Mostly shady with a lot of ups and downs. I also recommend started the hike the opposite way to a void that steep incline... unless that’s your thing! Lots of lady bugs and some nice tree diversity!

Attention out of shape novice hikers: this trail is more on the hard side of moderate. It was one hell of a workout for me. Beautiful redwoods, though. I have no idea what happened with the app today but it definitely wasn’t 11 miles.

Great short narrow paved trail! Parking lot and bathroom open! The hike back up was a little steep. Beautiful wild flowers. Caution on wearing shorts because the trail is narrow and there are some pointy weeds, it might scratch your legs. The trees covered the view so there wasn’t much to see.

This was a good walk for kids. Parts were a little steep for a toddler, but the shade was great on a hot day. Watch out for the prolific poison oak.

A nice, very short loop. The path is very narrow and there’s a little climb at the end. Overall, a nice short walk.

My first time trying this trail and I liked it . I was expecting a lot worse . Inclines are always a battle for me cus it gets my heart rate going but I’m glad I went . !! There are lots of trees to keep you cool in the beginning but no trees on the inclines . Steep rocky inclines you have to get over the inclines if you want to be able to get to the rest of the trail . . Lots of bugs I mean flying bugs that love to land on you . Butterflies kept following me around . Bring lots of water ‘ you’ll need hiking sticks or shoes with gold traction that are not flat . So hiking shoes or vapor max . I wore my vapor max and was able to conquer the inclines I had sticks too . I’m going to come again in the morning . It’s 91 degrees right now . Nice trail !!

Reading other reviews, I did the French Trail and ended with Stream Trail which was definitely the best choice. A lot of good scenery and it’s 90% shaded! It’s busy for the first mile but then you will rarely see anyone past that. I would definitely bring bug spray and comfortable shoes. Will definitely do this trail again!

Stream trail segment is great with beautiful redwoods and well maintained. West Ridge Trail is much less appealing. It’s pretty crowded and the trail needs some love. Also, I would suggest walking this in reverse order to what All Trails indicates due to the gradient. Not really child friendly

Nice mix of full shade and full sun. Somewhat steep getting up and down the ridge. Not a lot of traffic on a Monday afternoon. Lots of wild flowers!

Elevation climbs up and down, but is not too difficult. There is not a lot of shade on the main trail. It doesn’t get as crowded as other parts of the park. There are spectacular views.

It was a beautiful trail. Got lost a couple times but will most likely get better as I get a hang of the app. Will go back!

Perfect weather for a great trail!

Super easy trail even for someone as out of shape as me. Good amount of shade. I’ll likely try it again if I’m looking for a casual hike with minima difficulty.

Great place for physical distancing walks/runs. Wide walking paths. Some shade some direct sun. Bring a hat :)

Awesome redwood escape right at the edge of the urban city. This trail is very easy to get off trail (as you can see in my recording). Well marked, but so many trails intersecting and quick turns. You’ll want to download the map and keep your phone handy. Trail ranges from the crowded picnic areas with kids and families to the more remote hillsides. Lots of bikers in the beginning which was kind of annoying.

Lots of bikes

I enjoyed the solo hike. The trails were steep, all the way up. Views were still breathtaking under the gloomy 6:00 AM weather. There was a chances of rain, but I managed to finish it before it starts pouring in.
