Notes and Impressions - 

Starting from the Skyline Gate staging area, this beautiful hike started on the West Ridge trail (on your right as you face the park.)  I saw numerous hikers, trail runners and dog walkers enjoying this beautiful and accessible path.  As you'll see from the gallery, there are nice varieties of trees and shrubs, including Oak, Eucalyptus, and Bay trees.  The path is a wide fire road here, and the West Ridge trail continues through the park all the way to the Stream trail.  I took the Tres Sendas trail down to the valley floor.  One of the numerous trails that criss cross this park, Tres Sendas is a peaceful and soothing path that takes you through stunning Redwoods that can be over 100 feet tall.  If it's windy, the ferns bob up and down like they are waving at you, and the Redwoods creak and moan as they rub against each other.  The path was soft and gentle, with occasional roots and rocks.  The trail connects with the Stream trail as I  wandered along Redwood Creek, and I came across peaceful and picquresque scenes every few feet.  I followed the Stream Trail to Prince Trail, and climbed back up to the East Ridge Trail.   From the East Ridge trail, I continued on to the Phillips Loop, which took me back to East Ridge and to the Skyline staging area.
