This is a beautiful hike through the redwoods, with far fewer people than you will encounter at Henry Cowell. Note, however, that dogs are not allowed, even on a leash.

Awesome hike through redwoods, along a creek with points of historical interest scattered throughout (lime kilns, powder magazine, etc.). Very beautiful, some up and down, trails are well-marked. Watch out for rocks and tree roots! Hiking sticks are helpful. The distance for the trail route suggested by All Trails is incorrect; it's actually about 4 miles RT.

Beautiful hike that is mainly along the creek! 11 miles hike - fall creek trail to Lost Empire to Big Ben trail and end back on Fall Creek trail. Very little people on the trails so it's great to have all the park to yourselves.

This is a lesser-known hike where one can experience the redwoods to the fullest! The hike itself isn't too strenuous and it's definitely worth doing. Note that this hike is separate unit from Henry Cowell State Park!
