See some of the world's tallest trees along this easy, well-maintained hiking trail. A great hike for young kids. The Redwood Trail at Big Basin Redwoods State Park loop offers easy access to some of the tallest and oldest Redwoods anywhere. The fact that the trail is flat and well-maintained, combined with the well-marked attractions along the way make this a perfect hike for families with young children. The main attractions along this trail are Father of the Forest (known for its wide circumference), Mother of the Forest (the tallest tree in Big Basin) and The Chimney Tree (whose hollow trunk offers a spectacular view up into the sky).

Easiest trail in Big Basin but allows you to see some of the biggest trees in the areas, complete with informative signs. A bunch of hollow trees right off the trail you can climb in. Good for a little warm up.
