“A short but pleasant loop leading hikers into a thick forest of redwoods, seasonal creeks, and hardwoods.”— Matthew St
Family Friendly Wide trail but lots to see along the way.
Turn left on Tie Camp Trail and go 1.1 miles. This part of the trail goes through a really beautiful section of redwoods. Take in the shade and the beautiful views. Finally, turn left on the Ridge Trail and go 0.6 of a mile.
This trail is a fairly nondescript descent and is more of a connector than a destination trail. This will join the Merry-Go-Round Trail where you go 0.2 miles to get back to the trailhead.
