The best thing about this hike was actually the drive to get here. The road wasn't fully paved and there were lots of pot holes. Most of the time the road was wide enough for only 1 car but had 2 way traffic. That being said, I've been to 7-8 different redwood forests and this one was different. The drive... More

A bit of a rough road getting in, but passable and definitely worth it if you want an easy accessible path to astounding trees.

We walked several redwood trails & this was one of the best. It's short & flat, but beautiful. Almost impossible to get an entire tree in one picture. Parking is a bit limited. We were there in mid-week. Weekends might be difficult. Well worth the stop.

This section of Jedediah Smith Park is absolutely beautiful! A 10 mile drive among giants. We drove through and stopped many times for photo ops with the majestic redwoods. The silence and peace of this area is amazing. It takes a little while to drive through but it is worth it! Easy driving, no need for 4x4.

Beautiful place to walk. You can't go wrong here for a hike in the redwoods with the family. The road is narrow so drive slowly and enjoy these monster of trees.

The road is dusty and seems a bit long, but this diversion is definitely well worth your time. These majestic redwoods are beautiful. Even my young grandson was in awe of their size.

If you drive the scenic Howland Hills Road, definitely stop to hike the short but magnificent Stout Grove Trail! The beauty of the redwoods is just breathtaking!

One of the most amazing places I have ever seen. Easy access by car, the walking trails are generally easy to travel on as well and off season there are not a whole lot of people around-which is how I like it. The roads the last time I went, April 2016, were not in the best shape and I had... More
