Description

The trail starts at the Skyline Gate Staging Area and follows Redwood Creek through Redwood Regional Park. At 0.4 miles, you pass Girl's Camp and then head across the creek over a wooden bridge. The trail stays north of the creek for a while with Eucalyptus Trail joining at 0.65 miles and Tres Sendas Trail at 0.95 miles.

At this point, you have entered old-growth redwood and walk among some very tall trees. Prince Trail joins on the left at 1.35 miles, Mill Trail on the right at 1.5 miles, followed by Fern Trail at 1.7 miles and Chown Trail at 1.9 miles. You then cross Redwood Creek again and soon reach Trails End.

From this point on, the trail is paved and wheelchair accessible. You leave the redwood grove at 2.5 miles and enter more open land. Cross Redwood Creek one more time before you reach the Canyon Meadow Staging Area.
