Nice moderate hiking trail. Mostly flat. The redwoods were a nice stop. We added on a bit to the trail, by going off and up over the dam, coming back down and meeting the trail before it got back to the park. Ended up being a bit over 4 miles and took us around an hour and 15 minutes. It was an enjoyable morning walk.

This is an easy trial. Mostly flat. You can hike up along the dam. It's nice if you want to walk but don't want to over exert yourself.

The redwoods are cool. Otherwise it's just whatever.

Great walk for a warm day in CA, very easy - no incline and well managed trails (very stroller friendly for the kids). Had some great scenery, the trail is just off of Carbon Canyon Regional Park which is huge and has picnic areas, jungle gyms and a large lake. On the first Saturday of every month they have free guided tours to the Red Woods, I think you have to reserve a space tho. After pulling into the park entrance head all the way to the left, there's a parking lot and the trail head is well labeled.

There was a decent amount of people on the trail, but no so much that it was crowded.

This was a wonderful walk (I would not even consider it an easy hike.) Very peaceful and beautiful. Jogger friendly, but would not say stroller friendly unless you have sturdy wheels for dirt path. The coastal redwoods are wonderful - it is a small grove, but beautiful nonetheless! Parking was $3 (weekday) and is an easy in and out trail. When you enter the park, turn left and park all the way at the end. The trailhead is marked and very easy to follow.
