“A beautiful trail with stunning views of Redwood Creek and a few old growth redwoods.”— ALBERT GOODE
Family Friendly While the whole trail may be too much for young kids. The first few miles are beautiful and easy to travel. The first or second summer-bridges make a good early turn-around spot.
After the first creek crossing, the forest closes in around the trail and the scenery gets somewhat monotonous. the first mile or two is especially narrow, but then it opens up again. Approaching the end of the Redwood Creek Trail, you'll climb to an intersection with a trail to 44 camp. There you descend to your left toward the creek in which you'll find the second seasonal footbridge.
On the other side of the creek, the trail enters the Tall Trees Grove. Making your way among the big redwoods after the long hike up the creek gives you a real appreciation for how extraordinary this old-growth grove really is.
