I came here on a Sunday, late afternoon. Only saw a couple other people. What a gorgeous, peaceful place. The trees are absolutely majestic! I am in awe of these giants! Beautiful silence. Delicious, fresh clean air. The trees. 100 different shades of green in all the ferns. One of my most favorite places in California.

I had been here as a child, but my wife never had. We drove down from Corvallis, OR and she was so happy when I told her we were going to the Redwoods. Fun, long curvy road to get here. Just dirt though and lots of pot holes, so be safe. Lots of good trails that allow you to walk... More

Stout Grove, located in Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park, is a relatively small redwood grove but it features a dense concentration of large, old growth redwoods, free of an understory of smaller trees that would obscure the view of the giants, with ferns carpeting the ground. Considered by many to be the most picturesque redwood grove as a result, it... More

these old growth redwoods are so beautiful. I live here and am still astounded by their beauty. there are many trails off the road to stout grove, all different levels of difficulty. the trail in stout grove is an easy one. the only reason I didn't give a five star rating is sometimes the road is pretty bad, lots of...

Great quick stop off howland rd! Only about a half mile (and flat) so it's good for older or out of shape people. I just stopped by for a quick peek after some other hikes. It's a good bang for your buck (time wise) little trail, as there are some impressive trees in the grove.

This grove feels ancient. The trees are amazing and it will humble your very existence. I've been on several trails in the Redwoods, and this is definitely one of my favorite. Young and old (relatively speaking) can enjoy the soft ground of this awesome, short loop. A must!!

There is one spot where you can use the restrooms. I'd advise that you pass it. They are stinky, dirty, and dark.

The old growth Redwood forest is awe inspiring. This is a must see in the Jedediah Smith Redwood State Park. The trees are huge and majestic. The road there is narrow and rough in spots as it is unpaved but kept in very good shape.

After a walk on the soft trails of this grove, you will feel younger! Many of these trees are over 1000 years old! Very peaceful, quite spot to unwind and enjoy nature.

Magnificent display of some of Creation's most spectacular trees. Off the beaten path and worth the short drive.
