This was a pretty good hike. It was very strenuous as it was pretty much straight up to the look out and back. It was a bit warm. Some good views. Bring water!

Beautiful park, great trails, only downside was that the campsites were almost on top of each other.

Cannot imagine a cooler place to camp with kids, under the Redwoods and in beautiful natural surroundings. Campsite was busier than expected, but the rain of the last week just stopped so I guess everyone had the same idea. We saw a grey fox and...More
