Easy and walkable trail. Magnificent access to Coastal Redwood forest. It's a gem. Don't miss it on your visit to Crescent City.

If you only have the chance to go on one redwood hike, do this one. Easy for 95% of people, gorgeous and not a long way. Plus it is a loop trail that connects to other longer (and also wonderful) trails. Do. no.t miss. this.

Stout Grove is one of the most beautiful places in California. A must see! If you get an opportunity to go on a sunny day, it is spectacular.

This small patch of giant redwoods is truly awe inspiring. Pictures don't do it justice. I felt like a small insignificant insect while visiting here. The size and age of these trees make me feel like I have traveled back to a prehistoric time period.

Tress over 300 feet tall. Easy walking trails. Access to Smith Creek. Used a tour company, Redwood Sightseeing Tours, and they did a great job showing us the area. Highly recommend.
