Kruse Rhododendron Loop Professional Review and Guide
"This is a popular hike when the rhododendrons are in bloom in April and May. At other times of year you are likely to have the trail to yourself. Don’t restrict yourself just to rhododendron season—it is a pleasant hike through redwood forest at any time of year. The described hike is an extended loop through the park. If you’re just interested in seeing rhododendrons, you can take a much shorter loop through the best displays right near the trailhead."
--Stephen W. Hinch, Hiking & Adventure Guide: Sonoma Coast & Russian River (Wilderness Press).
