The trailhead of this easy, almost level 1.4 mile (2.3k) trail is located along Bald Hill Rd which heads east from a well marked intersection with the Redwood Hwy, US-101, about 1 mile (1.6k) north of Orick. Parking for the trailhead is on the right side of the road just after one passes under the foot bridge that will be... More

This was one of our last stops on our Redwood Coast trip. We had seen some amazing places already, so many tall trees that we wondered what could be so special about this place. But as it was one of the only easy stops in the actual National Park we felt we should pay it a visit. And I am... More

Be prepared, even if it's a short hike. We got caught deep on the trail by a hard rain storm. What a great quick hike, with a large quantity and quality of awe inspiring redwoods. Even though we came back soaked, we were so glad we did the whole loop. Especially since the Drury parkway drive was closed. Not sure... More

It's an easy walk, but the Redwoods are amazing. It was quite an experience to walk among them.it was a very serene and peaceful place

There are many, many redwood groves along highway 101 to check out, but this one is the best to walk through. It is located about 20 minutes north of Arcata, where highway 299 intersects highway 101, but very much worth your time.

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
