Overview

Even though this route is popular, this short loop should be on every visitor's to-do list. Featuring incredible scenery, a slice of history, and some remarkable trees, this trail exemplifies the traits that make Redwood National Forest unique.

Description

Traveling through the area in which Redwood National Park was originally dedicated by Lady Bird Johnson, this trail holds a special place in both human and natural history.

Along the trail, expect to encounter a smooth tread and gentle grades as you meander amongst the massive trunks of trees that have been alive since the time of Genghis Khan.

Whatever time of year you visit, you are bound to enjoy the bounty of the season, whether it's the cool mists of winter hugging car-sized tree trunks, the bright blooms of spring azalea and rhododendron, summer's bright sunbeams streaming through the trees, or the fall's eruption of fiery bigleaf maple.
