Description

Stout Grove is generally considered to be the most scenic redwood grove in the park, and it is topped off by its location next to the beautiful Smith River. Smith River is a Wild and Scenic River that is the last major undammed river in California. It gets its unique jade green color from the serpentine geology.

On the Road: The trail is a short, easy, and family-friendly 0.6 miles. The bridge to cross the Smith River to Jedediah Smith Campground is only installed during summer. The wide gravel bar where the redwoods meet the river offers good swimming and minimal current.

Family Friendly: And easy and short hike with giant trees and fun swimming.

Wet. Trail is in good shape but difficult to access. Only one road to the parking lot is open and it is partially flooded and very rough.
