Update

A route through the Tall Trees Grove and along Redwood Creek Trail, all while running in the beautiful old growth forest

Bill Sycalik

Overview

Almost the entire length of this run is in the redwood forest with two trips through the Tall Trees Grove. These are some of the tallest and oldest trees in the park.
Features: River/Creek — Views — Wildlife

Need to Know

There are two crossings of Redwood Creek. I took my shoes off and walked across and then put them on at the other side, but if you keep your shoes on, expect soggy socks for the rest of the outing. Depth can vary by time of year.

Runner Notes

The elevation is sneaky. It doesn't seem like much, but it adds up fast.

Description

The run starts with a descent on the Tall Trees Trail to the Tall Trees Grove. Take a moment to appreciate the size of these majestic old redwoods. From there, follow the Redwood Creek Trail to the trailhead and back. To get the full mileage, add a short out and back on Dolason Trail which provides an experience of the meadows near the redwoods. Overall, the climbing in and out of Tall Trees Grove and on Dolason Trail adds up to more than it seems. Be ready for it.

Flora & Fauna

The tallest trees in the world - redwoods.
