Just out of Orick, we turned east at the sign and followed a winding, rising road to the parking lot. There is no visitor center, but there are restrooms. The hike through the big trees is easy, a little more than a mile. You will see not only giant redwoods, but ferns, huckleberry, Eureka lilies, tiger lilies, wild ginger, and more. There is no way for me to tell how small and insignificant one feels among these big trees. Forget taking a photo and expecting your friends to see the grandeur, the sheer enormity of these giants. Best to have someone stand at the base to get some kind of reference, but even that falls short. Best yet, go there and experience the awe-inspiring scene for yourself. You will leave feeling you have witnessed the very Hand of God.
