The Redwood Grove Loop Trail showcases the tallest measured tree in the park and the two trees with the widest circumferences. Known as the Mother, Father, and Santa Clara Trees, these famous redwoods are among the most photographed trees in Big Basin. The easy accessibility of this half-mile, level trail allows park visitors an unobstructed view of the Mother and Father Tree, a wonderful view of the Santa Clara Tree (measuring in at 17 feet in diameter!), as well as many other interesting sites featured along the way. This short loop walk highlights the old growth Henry Cowell Redwood Grove. It's a compact, yet densely featured stand that competes with the best of the old growth groves, conveniently located near populated areas and on touring routes. For families with kids, this is a perfect walk. For tourists in the region, it's a great place to stop, stretch your legs, and get some quality time out of the car. The trail is flat, making it mostly handicap accessible and stroller friendly. In addition to the groves, Henry Cowell Redwood SP offers so much more. The park has over 15 miles of trails through a variety of mountain and canyon forests and meadow lands along the San Lorenzo River. Trails are available for equestrian use, biking, walking, and hiking. Fishing is available seasonally; picnicking and camping opportunities can be accommodated too. Adjacent to Henry Cowell is the Roaring Camp Tourist railroad. Combined, these two attractions make for a very full day or casual weekend outing. They work well together, highlighting both local history and nature.

Beautiful walk! Staying up the road and found this loop as a last minute decision. So glad we went. 10$ to get in and for parking. Did the .8 loop, easy walking, and not too many people at all. There’s maps and a guide on the way in that tells you some history and what the numbers on the trail mean. On route we saw a bunch of wildlife .. including yellow slugs that were pretty cool. Absolutely breathtaking trees. Check it out!

Nice break from the heat! Totally shaded and cool. Great for the whole family. Very clean and organized. Take time and enjoy all the information provided by the park, knowing the history makes it exciting. We wanted to do the train ride but way to expensive for a family. Hope they are able to get that down, would have loved to do it.

This trail starts next to the ranger station, museum, and parking lot. It’s the perfect trail to bring guests on. It is very easy, short, beautiful, shady, impressive trees, level, smooth, good for wheelchairs, walkers, and strollers. No animals or bikes.

A beautiful spot, but quite crowded on a Sunday. Spotted some black tail deer. It’s a great easy loop and very wide flat terrain for those who aren’t up for a longer walk. If you are, combine the pipeline road with this for a more diverse redwood scene.

This loop is less than a mile and it’s all about the gigantic redwood trees. It’s a flat well maintained bark dust path. The path is a loop and starts at the visitors center. Be sure to walk over to the Roaring camp and check out the trains. There is a path that connects the park to Roaring Camp. There are educational activities for kids inside the visitors center and a great 3D map of the park. It was this map that lead us to also hike the pipeline road trail to the observation deck. This was a 5 mile out and back. Incredible views from the top. Peekaboo of Monteray Bay. Amazing experience to hike in sand at the top. To think once upon a time that was the bottom of the ocean. Magical place. There is a trail inside this park for all levels of exercise. My wife and I logged 11 miles exploring this beautiful park and still left several trails untouched.

I grew up in a house along the San Lorenzo river- across Henry Cowel park and in the summer got to enjoy the constant sound of train whistles and bus loads of loud unappreciative school kids- the redwood loop is my favorite- such rich history from a president falling asleep on a log- to a hallowed out tree where if my memory serves me right, a squatter tired of society’s pace took shelter. Can’t bring dogs though, low blow park- low blow- I love my dog, and I love breaking big and bending as many rules , laws and decrees as possible- soooooo.......Great place to take your dog!

Done this loop a couple of times. Nothing more humbling than being surrounded by redwoods!

Great, easy hike that puts you among the trees right out of the parking lot. The trees tower above you, it's difficult not to take pictures around every turn! You will see the Mother and Father tree (with signage and a description of their size), as well as a few trees that have been burned out in the middle, allowing people to step inside the resulting "cave." Great wide gravel path the whole way. I went with a 3 year old and a stroller and both handled it great! The parking lot gets crowded very quickly however, even in January! So, arrive early or feel free to continue driving to the picnic areas and parking there. Highly recommend this (or any) of the trails here!

Short hike, but lots of trees to enjoy. Great for kids.

Beautiful trail, which gives everyone at every ability level a glimpse of the Redwoods and the surrounding environment. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it is heavily occupied, and not especially peaceful. I was almost ran over by a large group of school kids having a race down the path, followed by their teachers who were allowing them. I prefer the peace and serenity of nature to the screaming, undisciplined activities of children.
