One could also just cross over Stream trail and cut over to Eucalyptus Trail up to the East Ridge Trail, and back to the Skyline Staging area. There are plenty of maps at the staging area. There are many off shoot trails to hike here, and all trails are well marked. East Ridge and West Ridge are popular with Dogs:) As you move off these trails, it gets less populated.
If you need an easy trail for strollers, etc…Take Stream trail from the other end, (Canyon Meadow Staging area) it is paved for a pretty good section of it, shady, goes thru the Redwoods, and has a few Bathrooms and resting areas. It’s really beautiful.
