This park features 15 miles of hiking and riding trails through a forest that looks much the same as it did 200 years ago. Zayante Indians once lived in the area, where they found shelter, water and game. Henry Cowell Redwoods is home to a centuries old Redwood Grove that features a self-guided nature path. It also boasts other old-growth woods such as Douglas fir, mandrone, oak and a stunning stand of Ponderosa pines. The park has a picnic area above the San Lorenzo River. Anglers fish for steelhead and salmon during the winter. The park has a nature center and bookstore. The main park area contains the large, old-growth redwoods, while the northern area (Fall Creek) has about 20 miles of hiking trails. The tallest tree in the park is about 285 feet tall, and about 16 feet wide. The oldest trees in the park are about 1400 to 1800 years old. The park is near Felton on Highway 9 in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The Day Use Annual Pass is accepted at this park. Open Sunrise to Sunset.

The tail has heavy storm damage. Bridges washed out. Couldn't do the whole loop. Hope to try this again!

The river flows and canopy of redwood trees makes this the most exceptional hike in the area
