Hiking from Scharmen Road south on the NCT towards Mayfield Road, this hike certainly has some very nice trees and some nice water features. There is a beaver dam just above a camping spot along the creek. It is mostly a flat and gentle hike with a few hills and a steep switchback. The trees in the Valley of the Giants section are just amazing. I stood below them in awe. This trail is very well maintained, noting a new bridge built over a soft area in the trail. The campsite is accessible by crossing the creek on a fallen tree. The trail follows the creek just long enough. There is a bench to stop and rest along the creek, while listening to the birds. Very nice hike.
