The hike through the redwood forrest was exotic and exhilarating. Make sure you secure a hiking pass first. On our way driving out from the TTG area, we crossed paths with black bears 4 times! Each was alone and they were all separated by about a mile of distance. 3 were definitely young adolescents, and were naively standing in or... More

I went on this hike a couple days ago with my wife and 3 daughters - 12, 9 and 8 months. I packed the baby in a baby backpack. She fell asleep on the way down. I will say that this hike is much longer than the posted 1.25 miles. I run about 3 miles three times a week, so... More

This 4 mile out and back hike is appropriate for all age groups. You descend for about 1.5 miles before you reach the grove. Along the trial are trunks you can get inside. In the grove you get to stand beside some of the tallest trees imaginable and walk beneath branches heavy with moss. I have been here in the... More

Of the places we visited this grove took the most effort because you have to hike down 1.3 miles from the trailhead to thegrove itself. The trail is well maintained and, because you can only go by obtaining a free pass (only 50 passes issued/day), it feels more isolated than it actually is. The combined effect of the redwood giants,... More

This and fern canyon made the whole trip worth it! I loved this hike! There was only one other couple on the trail the whole time we were out there, awesome solitude! It was super easy to get a permit in early April and the drive to the trail head was gorgeous. At the trail head there is a little... More

I did this hike years ago, but MY GOD it was amazing! I did it with a friend who was a park ranger on her off day. She told me some of the tallest trees in the world were in the grove, but that they weren't told which ones they were because the park didn't want people climbing the tree.... More

My son wanted to visit Tall Trees Grove 3 years ago but we didn't have the 3-4 hours to spare but I promised him that we would be back one day. We did go back (with 70 year old grandparents, Mom and kid sister in tow) and it was very special. Why is it special? Let me count the ways:... More

Unbelievable!Registered and got the lock combo for the dusty road down to the grove.Thought we might be the only people there,wrong!I believe they allow about 50 registrants per day and by the time we got there,the parking lot was full.However,you felt you were alone in paradise!The hike down was pretty easy for old geezers like us and the mile loop...

You will need water, sturdy shoes, and hiker's enthusiasm but if you love nature, this hike is well worth your time and effort. It wasn't as long or as difficult as I had expected and the trees are simply amazing. Be sure to bring your camera!
