It rained the entire time and the bridge on north side is blocked off unsafe, so we turned back around. What we were able to hike was breathtaking. Very easy

Great trail through pristine redwood forest with good views of the creek flats. We did the full loop South to North. It’s difficult with the seasonal bridges out, but the water was low enough we managed to scramble over some of the large fallen logs. There are a few places with some trees down along the trail as well; one in particular that makes it somewhat impassable (as of Jan 2019). One of the main bridges also seems to have been damaged but the water was low enough to hop over.

This is a nice, minimal-effort trail. It's short and flat. You wind your way through some nice redwoods. I came here on Thanksgiving, when it was raining a bit, and I only saw one other group of people in the area (on a different trail) so I had this one all to myself. Definitely best when done in conjunction with other trails, but it could also be a solo trail for the whole family.

Beautiful trail! North side is more scenic than south side, so if you fear you might not make it across because of the removal of the bridge after September, consider only doing the north side. However, although bridge was out in November, river was easily crossable by foot, so we did the full loop. Trail is very shaded so wear warm clothes in fall and winter.

Wondeful woods! Easy hike, and well marked

Beautiful hike. I was only bummed because there was not a brochure that told us about the number.

Ferns and fallen trees make the forrst floor lush and beautiful. This is a Great trail to wander and take your time.

Was fun because you got a tour sheet which told you where to stop and gave you a blurb.

Very flat, easy to do. Would suggest

Got to the trail head w/ my pup and turned back. No dogs allowed ☹️

A little bit of everything .... you will want to saunter this trail and strain your neck looking up at great Giants along the way ... can make you feel quite small ... and humbled in the presence of these 2000 year old trees .... worth the time and energy to experience it .... the river sections would be amazing when the water is running but beautiful non the less ...

Very nice easy stroll beautiful

Wonderful hike! Enjoyed the loop even with temperatures in 90s.

Beautiful, peaceful, flat, family friendly trail. So glad we stopped here and saw these trees.

The entire tail was shaded. Not much of a view at the top, but still beautiful.

Beautiful 10-mile loop among the big trees with lots of different scenery. Relatively easy.

Excellent, easy walk among the Redwoods. Good exploration hike among the big giants, it’s a short introductory walk. Parking at trailhead is limited.

When you’re on the Avenue of the giants trailhead, make sure to walk straight to start the trail. You’ll see a big burned out root ball.

Beautiful trail. Much better than Founders/Machan duo. Used app GPS - about 2.6 miles total.

Beautiful trail. Lots of people recommended Mahan over this one, but there are pros and cons to both. Mahan is quieter, Founders has a great guide with accompanying plaques to learn about the amazing trees.

Beautiful, short trail.

Beautiful, short trail with some stunning trees.
Started trail from Women’s Foundation Grove across the Eel River. Parked and crossed a foot bridge. Although path is dotted on the map, meet up with Roosevelt Grove Loop isn’t well marked - there are three piles of rocks leading into the trees. If you miss it and keep walking, you will come to a second and smaller foot bridge. There is another entrance to the Roosevelt Grove Loop here on the right.

Gorgeous trail with lots of variable scenery and great redwoods. By our GPS watches, it was approximately 9 miles in just under 4 hours while using the AllTrails map. Mid-June had plenty of poison oak along the trail, so be sure you can identify it before you get out there.

Do this! Everyone sticks to main trail so if you get lucky you may have this trail to yourself. And boy will you be glad - there are some incredible giants and forest here and better yet, total tranquility.

Absolutely breathtaking but found it hard to fully appreciate with the crowds. Definitely go (because the grove is truly beautiful) but break away from the crowds for a while and take a less heavily trafficked path like Mahan’s Plaque Loop, which we loved even more.

I hiked this trail starting at the Hidden Springs Campground trailhead between sites 134 and 135. This section of the campground is not in use except on Holiday weekends. It is about 3 miles to the river. At the start, there is a muddy mess you have to skirt around then 1/2 mile of thick huckleberries. I saw saprophytic lilies which is always exciting but not many other flowers. After you cross the dirt road the trail becomes quite nice as you come into some old growth redwood stands, with oxalis and sword ferns. At the sunny cliff be aware of snakes as I saw a big one slithering underneath the madrone tree. There is a lot of poison oak throughout the trail but most especially towards the tunnel under the 101. It was difficult to avoid touching it. There are 4 or 5 switch backs but the rest just meanders. The map here is a terrible reflection of the trail. Williams Grove does not seem to have a trail to walk around on and view the large trees, it is mostly reservable picnic space however the river was quite lovely with beautiful rocks and the water temp was perfect!

Awesome views!!
