Begin at the Skyline Trailhead, turning right after the sign for the preserve, to follow Redwood Trail. The trail is clearly marked and bordered by logs or fences. The trail passes a beautiful sitting area with a bench, then a picnic table with a plaque. Follow it as it passes above a restroom, then continue straight to reach more picnic areas with tables. Turn back to return the way you came, if you are not ready for some hills, or turn left as the trail ends, to continue on a fire road towards Purisima Creek Trail. The trail will pass a memorial grove, then head downhill. The trail merges with Purisima Creek Trail / Bay Area Ridge Trail. Turn left and return uphill to the parking lot.
