Very short but beautiful trees. Great for kids and someone with limited mobility.
While this is just a short loop, my daughter and I were there for a couple hours just taking in the beauty. We saw just a couple other people there, probably because it is just a little off the beaten path. You have to watch for it--when we turned on to Walker Rd. we went way past the trailhead because the marker didn't stand out. It's just in a little way and when you see the restrooms, that's where you start. I felt wonderful being there. It's a very easy stroll for all levels.
Very short and easy. Trail head has moved off of 199. Turn at walked road. Trail begins at the restrooms
Another of my favorite places.
Great hike just off Hwy. 199 in Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park. Beautiful redwood trees.
