We did Rattlesnake Trail which connects to Coon Creek Trail to add some difficulty to our hike. Coon Creek trail is a nice shaded walk over even ground. Real nice trail but watch for ticks. 4 out of 5 of us had one.
I would say that this trail is definately just average. It's not a bad hike, but not beautiful either. The end of the trail is pretty much three dieing redwoods. If you want a better hike, try taking the peak trail that branches off on the left side of the trail, pretty close to the end.
The trail was very nice and very beautiful. It was not difficult so it is great for a novice. The only bad part of the experience was the flies. I am not sure if it was the time of year or if that is normal, but there was an incredible amount of flies... everywhere. They were a little annoying. Other than the flies... it is a great trail!
Very easy and relaxing trial. Started at 2 pm and finished at 4 pm. Saw lizards, poppies, poison oak, lupins, and alot of other plant life. Terrian changes from hot and sunny to cool forest to shaded trees. I was amazed to see such changes in terrian and was very happy that I hiked this trail. Great quick hike adventure.
Very nice, level trail. Pretty greenery and pleasant surroundings. Very best trail for young children. There are 6 bridges along the trail. Fun to cross bridges and see the creek flowing.
