Pipeline Road Professional Reviews and Guides
"Have you have ever wished you could spend a few hours hiking with your dog on the forest moon of Endor from the movie Star Wars: Episode VI, The Return of the Jedi? If so, you owe it to yourself to take a trip to Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park in the hills north of Santa Cruz and do the Pipeline Road hike. This area is so full of massive redwoods and so aweinspiringly lush and green that after your hike your eyes may actually hurt a little from beauty overload."
--Jason Fator, Best Hikes With Dogs: San Francisco Bay Area and Beyond (The Mountaineers Books).
"Pipeline Road, one of three trails that allow leashed dogs, is a paved path that begins behind the gift shop. Don’t let the word “paved” turn you off. Not only are dog owners lucky to find a state park that allows dogs on a trail, but also this paved trail under a canopy of redwoods complete with seasonal streams and a lazy river is astonishingly pristine."
--Linda Mullaly & David Mullaly, Best Hikes with Dogs: Central California (The Mountaineers Books).
