We loved the "primitiveness" of it. It was very low key and you just went to enjoy the redwoods. Loved hiking the trails and just looking around. We spent hours there.

We felt like we had stepped into Return of the Jedi. Thought Ewoks were going to pop out any minute. These redwoods are ginormous and the one mile loop hike was easy and fun. There are longer hikes but we needed to hit the road. This was a great place to stretch our legs. Restrooms at the trail head.

This was my husband's and my second visit to Stout Grove. We came in April several years ago and it made such a wonderful impression on us that we went out of our way to go back there in August when we were visiting friends in Portland. The beauty of the tall trees, the light and the hushed solemnity of... More

You can see all of the Redwood trees here from bottom to top as there isn't as dense vegetation as other areas like the Tall Trees Grove further south. If we had redone our one day in the area we would've gone to Prairie Creek Redwoods for a long hike then came here to see the trees. All of the... More

This area of trails was the best we experienced in this park. Easy to walk, incredible trees, walk to the river and swim.

Just a few minutes off 199, you can walk to an amazing grove of redwoods, standing and fallen, that's well worth the stop. Especially in the late afternoon as the sun filters through the trees....

Up till this trip we had never seen redwoods. Stout Grove does not have the Biggest but it lets you get right in the middle of them with very good access. It was very quiet and laid back atmosphere and every one we encountered were very nice

Liked the paved road through the grove and the many places to park and walk. You can reach Howland Hill Road from here also.

To get here, you take 199 to South Fork road to Douglas Park Road. After a mile it becomes unpaved Howland Hills Road. You go down the unpaved road which is fairly narrow in parts for about 2 miles until you come to Stout Grove on the right. The path is about a half mile loop in which you pass... More

If you are anywhere near the Jedediah Smith Park you must go see these trees. Yes it's down a dirt road. Yes there is only a little close parking. But on the short hike (1/2 mile) we saw better/bigger trees than almost anything we saw on the Avenue of the Giants. you will not be sorry you went to this... More
