Runner Notes

Often crowded with visitors peering into the treetops, come early if you're planning on moving quickly past the giants here.

Description

The Bohemian Grove Trail is easy to find, as it's one of the first paved routes that branch off of the Redwood Creek Trail. This offshoot is fully paved and accessible, though the growth and expansion of tree roots can cause potholes or cracks.

Though short, this trail is the fastest route into the Bohemian Grove. While the whole monument is a tree lover's paradise, the coastal redwoods and Douglas firs found in this grove are true giants. The tallest tree in the monument, "Tree 76," resides within this grove, towering 258 ft. from the forest floor. Tree 76's neighbors may be a somewhat smaller in stature, but the distinction is difficult to make from the ground, as each is a giant in comparison to humans!

After touring through the grove, continue on your way north, taking in the serenity of the area. Eventually, the trail will curve to the east, and visitors can either take the Hillside Trail to extend their journey, or head back while seeing new sights on the Redwood Creek Trail.

Flora & Fauna

Coastal redwoods steal the spotlight, but Douglas firs can be found, along with local wildlife such as squirrels and banana slugs.

Without a figure for scale, it's difficult to truly appreciate the size of these trees!
