A great short hike with aW swinging bridge to cross! A great thrill. You'll see many giant, ancient trees on your hike. Take the time to see this grove of trees.

Easy For The Whole Family! Awe inspiring 1000 year old trees to ogle and a fun suspension bridge to cross! Wonderful trail. No views of the mountain but so very worth the hour it will take!

Nice little hike on dirt trail. The end of the trail has a grove of large trees approximately 1,000 years old. There are benches at the end of the trail to rest. The trees didn't seem as large as the tones in the Giant Forest in Sequoia NP, but still neat to see. On the way, you cross a suspension... More

Kids love the suspension bridge. Crossing the bridge one person at a time. Very cool place and great for good pictures. A short and easy hike to go around the old forest and tall trees. Fresh air. Very relaxing! If your kids like to cross some suspension bridges, you should bring them to the Grove of the Patriarchs. I love... More

It also has a lovely watering hole that you can relax for awhile and have a dip. Recommend you bring a blanket to sit on and enjoy a picnic at... More

This 1.5 mile trail takes you in the forest among big trees. You get to cross a river on an one-person suspension bridge, which is very cool. There are several places you can get down to play with the water too. Keep an eye out for the mushrooms on the trees!

Don't miss this relaxed 1-mile hike to see and learn about the 1,000 year-old red cedar and fir trees and the irreplaceable ecosystem of this ancient forest. Expect some grade change and uneven trail surfaces. Definitely not "stroller friendly" but really beautiful. This is a perfect hike for helping children learn to appreciate nature and help preserve it by staying... More
