if you are coming in from oregon this will probably be your first opportunity to see the redwoods. stop at the info center and get what you need to see as much of this area as you can. it is amazing how different some of the separate areas can be.

There's a mostly paved trail that loops through the grove that is easy hiking and wheelchair friendly. Some of the most beautiful scenery in California. Parking can be at a premium on busy days because it's the easiest most accessible trail in the park. If you're looking for more rugged adventure, try the Boyscout Tree Trail just down Howland Hill...

Incredibly awe inspiring. Huge redwoods upright, and others horizontal after falling. Climb on some, through others, and think about the fact that these forests stretch back to the time of the dinosaurs. It's also located off Howland Hill drive - another top pick.

Cool drive to get here. Parking lot was paved and trails marked well and clean. Easy hike for all. Not very far. You're gonna take longer admiring and taking pics than it would to hike the trail back to your vehicle. Felling trees were very cool, the root system is huge! Pretty place to hike for all ages. One downfall,... More

Amazing place and well worth the drive along a dirt road. We drove in at 8am and it was a quiet drive so we could enjoy the redwoods along the road and at Stout Grove. Well worth the visit and rough drive.

If you go during the summer, it's fun to access Stout Grove through the Jedediah Smith Campground (as opposed to through the Howland HIll Rd). There are two temporary foot bridges set up during the summer over the placid Smith River to access the Stough Grove trail. The views of the river are a beautiful compliment to the giants of...

Beautiful. Bring bug repellant! Huge trees that you;ll never find anywhere else. Not handicapped accessible but you can just drive through and you'll still be impressed.

This old growth forest is a quick trip from downtown Crescent City and well worth it! There are several walking trails on the way and a short loop trail through the grove. The road up is mostly unpaved and an adventure in itself. A must see if you are in Crescent City.

What a treasure. The redwoods are beautiful and the trails well groomed. If you are on a larger motorcycle you will need to walk a bit as the pavement ends and is quite rough, narrow and heavily travelled.
