“A meandering trail from the valley floor up to the wide open ridge through the redwoods.”— Phil DiGirolamo
Family Friendly Of the loops around the valley, this is an easier climb or descent than the Lost Trail. Expect a couple hours of hiking for sure.
You can connect with the Lost Trail to do a counter-clock loop down back into the valley floor for about a 2.5 mile outing, or go clockwise onto the Panoramic Trail to begin a 3.4 mile loop. Either direction you choose to go, the trail and the views will be magnificent.
Many locals refer to this trail as the Ocean View Trail. There may still be signs with that designation.
