Is only 0.53 miles, is a loop. The signage states wheelchairs can do it. The ground cover is not muddy, is a thick layers of pine needles. If you are towing there is no parking at the trail head. And only small RVS can fit. Has a self guided tour flyer, in a box, for 1 dollar. And the trail has marked numbers, to follow along in the flyer. I suggest grab one. Trail head has bathrooms. Is all paved to the trail head from the road. Is a great hike for individuals with disabilities, to still be IN the forest.

Just of Highway 101 at exit 663 is one of the most impressive groves of Redwoods. You will see a HUGE tree with the center hollowed out. When you see it, you will wonder how it is still standing. As you walk the approximate 1/2 mile flat trail, you will see many trees that have blown down and exposed the root systems. Take a picture next to them to show how BIG the root system is. It will be two to three times as tall as you. If you don’t see this, you will have missed a gem!!!!! You can also go underneath the overpass to Rockefeller’s forest, which is another gem. It is about two miles but worth the trip. You will see some of the largest trees. There are so many, it will be hard to believe.

Once on the Avenue of the Giants look for Weott and you will find well marked signs leading you to Founders Grove. There’s lots of parking, picnic tables, trail maps and easy walking trails. There’s a good Founders Grove Loop Trail and you’ll be able to encounter the felled Dyerville redwood giant. It’s laying alongside 375 feet of the trail also, you’ll find the Founders Tree and many other unnamed giant redwoods. It was a very enjoyable stop.

One of the busier ares in the Park but still a great place to stop. Reasonably large parking area with restroom facilities. Path is across the road from the parking lot. You will see Redwoods standing and fallen. Redwoods with fire scars and burned out interiors. Lots of ferns. Redwood roots out of the ground that will give you an idea of how large these trees really are. Easy , basically level, path that could probably accommodate wheel chairs at least when it is dry. Very peaceful setting with the Founder's Tree. A number of photo opportunities.

On our way north to the coast, we stopped to stretch our legs at Founders Grove. This is a short walking path, less than a mile. It is perfect for all ages and abilities due to the level grade. This is a busy path but the pure quantity of redwoods makes this a worthwhile stop.
