After visiting the Stout Grove from Hiouchi, I continued on to Crescent City via Howland Hill Road. I thought it would be like the Avenue of the Giants, but it's really so much better. Traffic is sparse, so there is no pressure to drive very quickly. In fact, I don't think I topped 20 mph. Make plenty of stops or you'll miss subtleties of the forest (see my photos of the sunlight filtering through the trees). It felt like being on the moon of Endor (Star Wars), but instead of zipping in the air through the trees on speeders, you're on the ground. It's a one-lane road with plenty of turn outs to let other vehicles by. This really is a must do activity if you're in the area.

This is a great place to drive to and visit. Roads in great condition. Loved all the redwoods and no crowds when we went in the first week of August.

My family loves this road so much. We came back the next day and drove it two more time. The trails are all well maintained and gorgeous. Many trails are flat, but can be slippery, so use caution. But people with disabilities shouldn’t have a problem here if they have help.

This beautiful dirt road goes through Stout Grove, connecting Crescent city with highway 199. It used to be a rough ride, but it's been graded and is an easy drive for anything other that a large van or RV

One of the highlights of the trip to Jedediah but a part if it was closed at boy scout trail. We brought a lunch and found a turn off with enough room to park and at our lunch on the river- so beautiful!!!
