Very easy hike through amazing trees. Parking lot is small so the earlier you arrive the better. The path leads you from one huge tree to another. A must see.

The Lady Bird Johnson Grove is at an unusually high altitude for Redwood Trees and is an old growth, virgin Redwood forest with a mixture of tree varieties. The walking paths are clearly marked and are magnificent. In Spring you would see the native pink rhododendrons in bloom. There are public restroom facilities in the ample parking lot. Walk quietly... More

Mile long trail through the coastal redwoods. Crowded parking lot with no picnic tables. We got impression they want you to do trail, and leave. The trail itself is a one mile loop, and wheelchairs could do it. There is a very pretty bridge from the parking lot which goes over the roadway to the trail. It is pretty in... More

Some advanced travel literature gave us the impression that this location would be great for observing elk. It isn't. It's deep, dense, quiet, wonderful forest, perfect for hiking and enjoying the solitude of silence. There's a path (trail) of about a mile (or a bit more) in length that is easy to walk and it takes you in a loop,... More

The grove is a pleasant way to walk among the giants and to enjoy nature. Surprisingly not too busy in late July, there is a small parking lot immediately adjacent to the grove. Having seen several other areas of redwoods, I would not rate this grove as the best or as a must see. Nonetheless, there is surely nothing that... More

Really nice short trail with good accessibility. We went in the morning when the mist was clinging to the hillside and the light beams coming through the tree canopy were absolutely incredible. Also rhododendrons still out. There are basic toilet facilities at the small car park and a trailguide just over the bridge. An interesting aspect of the 1 mile... More

This was my favorite trail in all of the big trees of California. The trees are huge, and the foliage is lush and green along the trail.

We went around 1pm. It was crowded in the parking lot with several people eating a picnic lunch after their walk. Luckily on the trail we were spaced out from people as we walked through. It is an easy walk, nice and relaxing. The brochure at the beginning of the trail provides you with some information regarding the redwoods which... More

We did this hike early in the morning, and it was perfect! The mist raining down from the trees down to the fauna was beautiful. Do not trip, you will be constantly looking up and walking at the same time, in awe of the beautiful trees. Easy loop, not much in elevation change. After the trail keep driving up to... More

This is a must see. A short drive up the hill to a majestic walk through the red woods. It is a nice walk that takes you in a loop back to the parking lot. My 85 y/o grandmother had no problem walking the trail. Let me say this walk was stunning. Pictures cannot do the grove justice. I highly... More
