Good, easy walk. No dogs allowed on trail, we didn't know this before we got there. Restroom was nasty.

As advertised - great way to experience the redwoods. I hit the mill creek trailhead and it was fantastic.

We were hiking to the backcountry campground but it was dark already, so I missed most of scenery going up. It was a whole different adventure going in the dark. Very eerie, extremely quiet. Didn't see anybody on the trail or at the campground, but this was late November. This is NOT a redwood area, but still very pretty. It isn't easy in the least bit. Literally uphill the entire way with a steep incline. Add backpacking gear to that and you have a great workout. We saw some people while going down the next morning.

Beautiful trail. Started early enough that there was nobody else around. On my way back, around noon, more people were showing up including their dogs which are not allowed on the trail. When you take the side trail to the Boy Scout tree, it appears to split a few feet in. The intended trail is to the right. The other is a short cut and pretty steep.
