Pioneer Tree Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"A pamphlet available at the ranger station tells you about the plants and animals on this short interpretive trail. To reach the trail from the ranger station, follow the road across the bridge over Lagunitas Creek and go left to the Redwood Group Picnic Area (parking available here). Just beyond the fire-road gate, pick up the Pioneer Trail where it begins to climb gently along Wildcat Creek. The trail winds through the redwood forest, flanked by tanbark oak, hazelnut, and ferns. Look for the interpretive signposts about redwoods, fire, the pioneer tree, and forest ecology in the guide. Watch for poison oak."

"This is a relatively easy hike that features the magnificent redwood forest of Samuel P. Taylor State Park with the Pioneer Tree. Some poison oak and traffic noise."
