Redwood - semi easy lollipop loop 6 miles

We'll get an early start on this hike in order to avoid most of the heat.

 

Hike rating: Moderate - some climbing nothing too awful

Hiking pace: relaxed

This hike will leave 5 minutes after the posted start time.

Efforts will be made to keep the group together.

About 6 miles, some hills, mostly shade.

Bring, snacks, water and poopie bags.

I will bring maps for folks who like to hike ahead.

Route:

West Ridge Trail, Graham, Dunn, Baccaris, return via West Ridge.

      Aww, just getting this comment. Well, I did end up going but I think I arrived closer to 9. I ended up just doing the Stream Trail, I think until around trail's end, then turned around and came back. Beautiful and thankfully shadey! I picked up a paper map myself for the future. Thank you though! We had fun anyway!

    Elaine sorry I ended up on redwood road entrance. My fault didn't pay attention to address. I went anyway though I knew you would be leaving on time. I look forward to others.

    I don't mind, I was thinking of going and exploring anyway, however, I may see if I can do a slightly shorter hike/loop, or just turn around after walking 30-35mins (I walk at a fairly good pace) to make it closer to 4-5 miles. Though at this point I'm running late :-)
