on Chinquapin Trail

We started at 7:30AM. it was quiet, there are routes when it's a I
little confusing that we have to go back and forth until we hit the right one. we had to go back half way since we were time constraint. but over all, it was a good hike.

We started from the North Ridge trail parking lot. It’s a really great hike with stunning views on the ocean, followed by being surrounded by the redwood trees. Then a rather easy walk along the creek, followed by a steep climb. It’s a proper workout in the end, but a very satisfying hike!

Easy trail, nothing spectacular. You end up next to the 280 which is not nice, but then again you get a great view of the bay on the other side.

It’s great as a an off-road running track though.

Beautiful and easy hike (if you go clockwise) in the woods , very peaceful and quiet before 10am. Great for families with kids as the incline is very mild.

Trail starts downhill, so conseeve your energy to fight the uphill battle on return.
98% if the trail is under the shade. The ground is covered by thick layer of pine needles- like walking on carpet.

There’s a couple of entrance for this trail, trail signs inside the park is good, no so good to the exit of the park. I’ll say going down is easy, uphill is harder, beautiful redwoods.

Love it!!! just so nature!!!

Loved this short hike! The end of the trail is big Redwoods with a small babbling stream. The weather was perfect while I was there. Good for families. It was difficult to find the entrance. Seems like a hidden trail which makes it all the more enjoyable.

good to have on hand at a moments notice where ever you are when you a looking for an activity.
also shows if dogs are allowed before you get there so trips aren't wasted.

probably best for an early morning hike when it's not too hot, given that only the beginning of the trail is nicely shaded, and the rest is quite bare. quite a bit of uphill in the second half, and lots of loose gravel that makes going downhill a bit challenging. view is very nice when you get to the summit via anniversary trail. very worth it!

Quick hike right off the highway. Pretty short and easy, but spectacular views.

Easy hike with kids.

Maybe medium trail not hard.
Not very good marked as trail goes through several parking locations but with this app you'll be okay.
Nice shaded trail for 80% of the time.
We end up doing 10 miles not 8.5.

great moderate hiking.
Miramontes is close but you can navigate easy.
other than that is a great hike.

Nice tour belong Redwood, Oak and Eucalypt trees. Area needs some rain, though. Quite dusty trail.

We did this loop anticlock wise (good choice if you ask me). Some sunny spots coming back (the other half) but not bad at all.

This is a great hike. Started off of skyline and did Harkins ridge first since it was 9:30 am and already feeling the heat. It's even more beautiful once you are down in the groves. Take a few extra minutes and just sit there. Saw a handful+ of people but mostly had it to myself. I would say it is moderate to hard.

I would rate this moderate. Most of the route is well covered by trees and did not feel the heat at all. Beautiful views. Go early to get parking

One of the best kept secrets of the Bay Area

I love to do this hike but always do it in reverse. start and endon Purissima Creek Road. I like to get the hard work out of the way first and then coast downhill to finish

Nice mid length hike for experienced and fit hikers. Much of this route is rolling up and down and runnable. A great extended version of the usual 10 mile loop.

This was a great hike, it’s super shaded so great for sunny days, easy to find too.

Good hike, definitely challenging! We did a side trail not shown to see the sand stone formation, which was worth it - that trail is marked too! We didn’t do the fir trail portion due to being too tired! On the plus side, it was well shaded and the temperature was perfect for starting the hike at 8am

Good moderate trail with some inclines on the track. Some beautiful scenes of the Forrest on the way.

Did the Whitmore Gulch - Purisma - Craig Bitten. A total of 9.2 miles.
I would rate this Moderate

Great trail and nice workout. Edgewood features some really nice views, a variety of types of terrain and easy alternative paths in case you want to adjust your hike for ease/more tree cover. Definitely wear sunblock and bring a bottle of water as it can be on the warm side during the summer. Also note that there is a good amount of poison oak to the sides of the trail. Nothing to worry about but be aware. There is a nice parking lot, water filling station and a cute education center at the entrance to the trail too.

Nice shaded trek with clear sign posts and only light traffic. The last 1-2 miles were tough...probably the steepest climb and little shade. Definitely a good workout!

Good hike , view was disappointing
