This is a special place that requires a bit of planning. Access to the one lane road is via a locked gate. You get the combination at the park visitor center which opens at nine, and they limit access, so plan accordingly, particularly if you...More

So pretty with all the huge trees,and to think the cAli forests were like this years ago. Couldn't help but photo several of the trees,so tall and stately. You could smell the pines with the damp air which makes the winter driving another delight.

Throughout a lot of the hike I had a lot of trouble looking up though, because there was so much interesting stuff happening around me! Banana slugs! Ghost snails! Weird, lush ferns that look like Jurassic Park! The trees (including, allegedly, the tallest tree in...More

The trees and the hike really are spectacular, even for someone like myself growing up surrounded by forests. I can definitely rate the hike and beauty a 5! But, after getting the permit and gate code from the ranger station, it's a long drive to...More

This is a relatively easy hike of approximately 4 miles round trip with an elevation loss/gain of 800 feet. The trail is nicely graded and it's an enjoyable hike to see some of the tallest trees in the world - the coastal redwoods. The first...More

We parked at the bottom of the hill (trailer turn around) at the trailhead and hiked in. I drove up Lady Bird Johnson and it was paved to that point. If the park issues a permit to drive into the grove I'd ask for a current... More
