This loop, starting at the north parking lot to purisima creek, then craig britton trail, was beautiful. The creek was still active and most of the hike was tree lined and beautifully green with ferns and big leafed maples. Don't miss it!

Not much parking, but Purisima Creek Redwoods are towering giants that few realize exist. It's located nearby Half Moon Bay, so if you are on the coast, or live there, check out these redwoods.

Good trails but not one of my favorite hiking spots; although the scenery is very nice I prefer other locations in the area to hike but it is worth the visit

Nice hiking trails (a couple to choose from) and lots of shade along the way. Steep incline at some points. Like Jurassic Park. Filled with ferns and creek and wildflowers in the right season. Well worth it.

I've done over 20+ hikes over the last year all over the state and I can't believe I did this one for the first time and it's only a 25 minute drive from Redwood City! This is my new favorite local hike. We went on...More

This park is just beautiful. We hiked the North Ridge trail which is mostly downhill going out, but then, of course, it all uphill coming back. However, the effort is well worth it for the fantastic views of the coast and the ocean. The trail...More
