Incredibly humbling to see these giants close up. Gives you some perspective of your spot on the planet. Be sure to go across the suspension bridge to see the big boys. A wonderful experience.

This hike was less challenging than the Wonderland Trail but just as beautiful. Very peaceful and serene.

One of the best short trails you would ever walk in your life. Not a paved path. So watch tree roots. Adjoining stream, wonderful

If your time is limited, you can skip this since there is really not much to see other than a chain bridge.

A beautiful short hike in the middle of lots of tall trees. The suspension bridge is cool; one person at a time! There a few places where you can get down to the river to play in the water too. Perfect hike with little kids!
