  • This park provides a large network of trails for hiking. There are two parking lots on the south west and eastern sides that charge $5 for parking. The added bonus with the fee parking is that there is always parking available. The large network of trails provides opportunities for biking, 4-10 mile loops for hiking, and plenty of picnic areas. The trails are dog friendly with the typical leash requirements. There is a nice paved trail near the Canyon Meadow Staging Area which provides about 2-3 miles of flat elevation great for families with young children. Other trails provide roughed moderate to difficult steep terrain for those looking for some elevation gain. The lowest point around Redwood Creek is around 600 feet and trails connect up to Redwood Peak at 1539 feet. Enjoy the park and don't forget to wave to those passing by. We are all one community connected with this lovely park to enjoy.
  • Okay. The kids LOVED the famous ladybug gathering. So THAT alone made it worth it. Would I do it again with a double stroller, NO! The wife and I parked at Skyline Ridge Staging. OMG. Lots of steep hills. On the way down, it’s downhill but on the way up, it was one heck of a challenge. We ended up partnering up and pushing the stroller together while our four year old was chanting “left, right, left.” The two year old stayed quite (thank goodness!). We are two parents that work out pretty frequently but we were drenched in sweat when we were finished. If this does not scare you. Bring water and lots of snacks to keep the kiddos entertained. Good luck!
