The hike to Tall Trees Grove requires a special access code to open the gate at the trail head. We were told that the tall trees grove is limited to 50 per day. It is a gorgeous hike (both uphill and down) - we took plenty of water, power bars & nuts and saw only a few other hikers in... 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 the world) were just the icing on a really tall cake. You have to get... More

To get to this remote hike, you have to first pop in to the visitor center near Orick to get a free pass and the key code to the locked gate at the mouth of the gravel road which you drive down to the trailhead. 7 miles or so driving from the 101, interior (away from the ocean). 6-6.5 miles...

This is one of the gems of Redwood National ark. To get there you first go to park headquarters a mile south of Orick. They will give you written directions and a pass that is free. It has the days combination on it. There is a locked gate that you use the combination for then you should close and lock... 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 the gate. Really disappointed when we found the ranger had accidentally gave us the wrong... 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 thing you need to do before starting the hike is to stop by the Thomas... More

The hike through the redwood forrest was exotic and exhilarating. Make sure you secure a hiking pass first. On our way driving out from the TTG area, we crossed paths with black bears 4 times! Each was alone and they were all separated by about a mile of distance. 3 were definitely young adolescents, and were naively standing in or... More

I went on this hike a couple days ago with my wife and 3 daughters - 12, 9 and 8 months. I packed the baby in a baby backpack. She fell asleep on the way down. I will say that this hike is much longer than the posted 1.25 miles. I run about 3 miles three times a week, so... More

This 4 mile out and back hike is appropriate for all age groups. You descend for about 1.5 miles before you reach the grove. Along the trial are trunks you can get inside. In the grove you get to stand beside some of the tallest trees imaginable and walk beneath branches heavy with moss. I have been here in the... More
