Very tall trees

the only drawback to this drive is if it is raining. The road can get a little muddy... The trees are spectacular! I had no idea they could grow so tall.

Great little stop if you're traveling along the coast. The stout grove can be seen in as little as 30 minutes once you get to the parking lot. Location feels very secluded which makes it even more special.

Stout Grove is a grove of immense Coastal Redwood trees. It is in a lush setting right on the banks of the very scenic Smith River (on of the last un-dammed wild rivers in California. These trees have been growing here since the time of Christ. If you are here on a day when the sky is clear and there... More

Stunning. You can't comprehend the magnitude of these trees until you're up close. Everyone should experience this to further their respect for the preservation of our wildlands.

My husband enjoy this hike to the bottom. I couldn't due to knee injury. It hilly to begin with but become flat he said. Has few trees to view. It was good break and stop and short...but not our 5 plus stars stop.

Get your camera lenses clean and plan to spend several hours being creative. Don't forget water and to look down for the slugs. Park your car along the road and explore away from the tourists. Take your time and smell, listen, touch, and look. Tasting is all on your own.

As you drive or walk through this grove of old growth redwoods, one feels as if a dinosaur will be looking down at you just around the bend! Breathtakingly beautiful. An experience you won't want to miss!

Definitely something everyone should see. Beautiful trail even in the rain. It is a shame that the redwoods were slaughtered years ago.

I live a little more than a mile away from this grove, and I am still amazed at the size of the trees every time I visit. There are numerous trails to hike, and they are easy enough to bring younger children to.

The Stout Grove loop not only gives you up close and personal time with some truly outstanding giant coastal redwoods but also links to 2 trails with access to the Smith River, including the summer foot bridge which spans the river and connects to the park campground. It is usually our 1st walking stop when we take new visitors to... More
