Redwood Bowl Loop via French Trail and West Ridge Trail
This is a difficult loop trail to Redwood Bowl in Redwood Regional Park. A great alternative is to drop down to the French Trail a half mile past the Skyline staging area (hiking counter clockwise), then pick up Redwood Peak Trail at the bottom for a lung busting climb. At the top take the spur trail to the right to view the USGS summit marker. This option offers more elevation change and a healthy dose of second growth redwoods. Watch out for poison oak encroaching unto the trail. In April and May watch for wildflowers, especially the Irises and Star Flowers.
