This trail is a little out of the way so it isn’t filled with people. The trailhead has ample parking and a toilet facility. The trail loop itself is short and mostly level. If you take the side trails off to the left (going downhill) you’ll add a couple of mikes and some elevation change.

This is a beautiful forest trail through the ferns, variety of trees and of course some redwoods. We all enjoyed the hike and getting away from crowds here.

If you use Apple Maps to get to the trailhead, it says you’ve arrived when you turn off Winchuck River Rd, but you really still have 4 more miles on the dirt road before it ends at the trailhead.

Yep, there are redwoods in Oregon. This lovely trail is just 11 miles southeast of Brookings. You go south on Hwy 101 about 5 miles, then go up the Winchuck River road for a couple of miles. Turn right onto Forest Service Road 1101. Continue up this road for about 5 miles. At the end you will find the parking lot with a bathroom. The trail is only about 2.4 miles and will take about 45 minutes to hike. The trail is well maintained and has a couple of creeks where my dogs like to drink. It is rare that we see any other people there. The only issue is the access to this site. It is adviced to have a high suspencion vehicle or 4 wheel drive in the rainy season as there are gulches and mud holes along the way. Wheelchairs could go on this trail when it is cleared from debris from the latest storm. The trail does have some inclines to take in.

I revisited the Oregon Redwood Trail last week and felt it needed an update. In the last review in 2015, I said the road was in pretty good shape, and passenger cars would make the 8 mile trip with no problems. But after a year of heavy rainfall the road has some rough spots now, that might be too much for a low clearance passenger vehicle. A passenger vehicle could still make the trip, but you'll have to be extra careful to do it. Now if that doesn't sound too inviting, there's another beautiful Redwood trail 9 miles up the North bank of the Chetco River, in the Rogue/Siskiyou National Forest, just past Alfred A. Loeb State Park. The road is paved all the way, and there's plenty of parking. And lots to do also in Alfred A. Loeb State Park too - swimming, fishing, picnicking, and hiking.
Another problem going to The Oregon Redwood Trail is the sign for the turnoff has been ripped down. But if you go about two miles up the Winchuck River Road there's a big, old barn, with a rusty roof, and just past that, is the right turn, onto the forest service road that take you to the trailhead. You cross the river here on a one lane bridge. If you desire solitude, check out the Oregon Redwood Trail, if you don't mind a few other people around, checkout the Rogue/Siskiyou Redwood Trail. Both are beautiful and lush and worth the visit.

The dirt road is long, rutted, and dirt but leads to the most peaceful forest of redwoods. We saw no other cars on the road and thought we were lost. There aren't many signs and it feels like a mistaken route. However, you end up at a dead end with a trail going through Redwoods. Very peaceful and serene walk through the woods. We finally saw 2 other people but other than that it feels abandoned.

We went here based on other reviews we read, and were not disappointed! The road in was about 4 miles of ruts and bumps - no problem for my truck, and I'm sure my Subaru would make it fine as well, but low clearance cars might have to be more careful - but still doable. The trail is amazingly well kept and wide for being up such a road, and once there, there is a peacefulness that is not available in the California Redwoods due to crowds. Impressive trees! There is a 3/4 mile loop that is fairly level, and a side-loop that adds about 1.2 miles that is steeper but still good trail - well worth doing. You are immersed in the the trees and the tranquility of nature while on this trail.

Want to take a quiet walk in the woods - well Oregon Redwood Trail will do the trick. If you also like off road backroads through pristine woods you're in luck again, as there's about an 8 mile ride on a narrow road to the trailhead. The road is in fairly good shape so even passenger cars will have no problem navigating the road. When I was there in June I never passed, or saw another car on the road. But the road is narrow and if you encounter another vehicle you might have to back up a ways to allow passing, as there are wide spots in the road to pull off into, but they're few and far in between.
The trail is not very long, about a mile and a half loop, but very nice and tranquil back in here, deep in the woods. The Redwoods here are smaller than the giants of Del Norte County, mostly second growth, but still a very beautiful forest to walk through. So if you're tired of barreling down Hwy 101, or had enough of the beaches for awhile, check it out, just south of Brookings, and the turn off is well marked.

This is a pretty easy trail and has some really pretty waterfalls and streams, of course not so much in the summer as we haven't had much rain. Some steep parts but a nice well maintained trail.

Really worth the time. Get out of your car and see some of the most magnificent redwoods along the coast. Take your time and enjoy something you won't see anywhere else.

We got lost a couple times trying to find the road to this trail and think that someone must have taken down a sign in one direction. Once we found our way, the private road proved to be very uneven and treacherous -- and we were driving a large Toyota Jeep! It is a single lane, hugging a mountain with a steep drop on the other side, so meeting an oncoming car is challenging. Fortunately we met at on of the few spots with a bit of a shoulder. Once at the top, the trek through the redwoods was spectacular. I highly recommend it!
