Great trail, my dog and I loved it. Only thing that was a bit confusing was the crossing over of parking lots and the busy street a couple of times. Other than that it had gorgeous landscape. I think we’ve found a new favorite spot for hiking

Shaded the whole way nice wide trails for kids and family. Keep going until you get to the parking lot, you will see a ranger station. Bathrooms all open and. Signs everywhere on trails.

thanks 4 sharing Courtney, the pictures of the place so warm dark and alluring inthere mystical solemn grace. i look forward the this parks opening, hey keep on, keeping on, thank you

Beautiful and lush. A little soggy at some points.

Currently closed due to funding and trail maintenance. I was pretty bummed I drove all the way up there to a closed and locked gate. Nobody wrote closed in the reviews so I’m hoping I will save some ppl the heartbreak.

Trail was overall good. I like the forest trail. I don’t like the fact that we had to cross the main road, Pole Line because there are maniacs that drive through. Trail can be confusing because it had us walk the parking lot a couple times. Beware the last stretch is a steep uphill.

Can’t give a true rating. We came at 4:30pm (before sunset) on Sunday 2/16/20 and the gate to the trail was closed. Just a heads up. We were so disappointed!

This area is currently closed due to lack of funding for maintenance. you can probably walk up the road to the parking lot, but I think they have temporarily closed the access road to the parking lot.

A little muddy but great hike!

Part of the trail a tree fell and covered it so you have to climb over. Beautiful hike but this trail way was super confusing at multiple times.

Nice and shady

Short and sweet.. nice little hill and back.

Great place but hard to find the trail sometimes.

Quiet trail which although rated as Easy, does give a good workout with slow climbing paths. Some nice vistas but not of the ocean. Can't beat the price of $2.

Wanted a quick hike with a great view and that’s what this is! It’s straight up but doable, the last hill before the deck was the steepest and I slipped a little so be careful. Extremely dog friendly with lots of friendly dogs. You can also take the loop to get to the deck which is less steep but takes longer. Close to Santa Cruz without the crowds would visit the forest again for sure. Watch for all the wood carvings!

Great hike when you don’t have a lot of time. Some steep inclines but nothing that can’t be negotiated using cars.

Great trail, nice views, funny animal carvings along the route. Great overlook picnic area too. Took our two dogs & the hike was perfect for them. A few steep uphills.

Lots of really nice trails up here. Small stretches of steep elevation but nothing too crazy. Great view of the surrounding area, you can see all the way to Moss Landing on a clear day.

Great views of redwoods and eucalyptus trees. Mostly shaded. On weekends can be a bit noisey due to campers and picnickers.

covered in fox tails and not worth the price.

Beautiful steep trail. Some single tracks were full of poison oak as it is in full growth mode right now. Nice shaded trail for hot days.
