This is an easy hike to get your first glimpse of the giant redwoods without a strenuous walk or great amount of time.

Very easy access by car to adjacent parking lot and short walk downhill to grove. A beautiful peaceful grove of redwoods that have survived all these years. Can get very busy and small parking lot Outhouse style washrooms

Trees are unbelievable! Breathtaking site to see. Take howland hill road in, but it's quite narrow so don't bring a big vehicle. There are spectacular trees along the road as well.

Stout Grove was the northernmost point on our trip up the California coastline. It was well worth the drive and definitely did not disappoint. We opted for the Howland Hill Road approach and we loved every bumpy mile of it! We walked only the short loop at Stout Grove and more or less moved at a snail's pace just to... More

Took the river path to the Stout grove. It's a one of a kind experience to walk through an old growth redwood forest. The majesty and longevity of the trees is a marvel

What a great little hike. You get a chance to walk among "Champion" old Growth redwood trees with no fences, crowds or lines, just you and the redwoods. it is a very dusty dirty road to get to, but is well worth time time.

This deeply wooded, soft path through the HUGE redwoods made me feel very tiny. Of all the places we visited redwoods on our three days in the area, I think this was my very favorite. I felt like I'd landed on another planet walking around this lush and QUIET wooded place, among the giants.

Actually visited this twice. First day it was raining so we just drove through the area. The second trip we stopped and walked the trail. Well maintained and beautiful sights. Would recommend it if you are in the area.

Very interesting path with a nice view through high sequoias despite the grey weather and that it was late in the evening. The only remark are the indications that are really confused: it's a circle path but it's missing the way to reach the parking and you risk to loose yourself taking another path.

Nice place for a relaxing hike. Not much parking so you may need to circle back to use the trails. The road to Stout Grove is rough.
