Easy, but beautiful!

Good to walk :)

I'd definitely do again mostly for the river. we took our swimsuits and sandals and pottered down the river watching fish and skimming stones. Be careful of the algae, avoid areas with a lot in (particularly with children). Be aware there is very little shade on the banks so bring an umbrella or sun cream. wouldn't call this a hike but a nice walk.

trail was fine. lots of traffic and the parking lot was atrocious. once you got on the trail it was fine though. self guided tour was pretty cool also. this is a super easy introductory hike. take your friends who don't hike kind of hike.

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

So beautiful! A must see!

Beautiful, peaceful, easy hike! Well worth the drive back to the trailhead. My husband and I did this hike at 0900 and were the only ones around. Wear waterproof shoes/sandals as your feet will get wet. They filmed a scene from The Lost World Jurassic Park here if that excites you as well.

nice trail , water very low in river.

lots of big Redwoods and easy pull outs if you want to drive slower and enjoy. black errors on the side of the road near the top, and a few trail heads. great scenic drive. for even more break off down Mattole Road and there is a lovely loop a mile before Albee campground

Short and to the point, this trail was an easy one and if you take the effort to drive up to the grove, you may as well walk the whole loop. Tons of beautiful trees and not a lot of people, as we went later in the afternoon when visitors were few and the light was perfect. Would highly recommend it if you’re in the area.

Epic trail

Astoundingly beautiful, even though well trafficked. Easy, even for older, less active folks. I suggest water shoes, you'll get your ankles wet unless you can cross the shallow river/creek on a log (easily done if you have someone with you to hold your hand). So worth the drive on a very narrow, sometimes dirt road riddled with blind turns. Loved it!

amazing to hike such great sights!

Beautiful. Great short hike. Only downsides are that access is 8 miles down a bumpy dirt road, and there are a lot of people. At least 30 cars in the parking lot for a 1-mile loop hike.

Fun area! Little crowded but so worth the sites!

beautiful a must see easy hike except to get wet feet

Easy hiking and connects with other trails in the area.

Quick and easy, but good way to get a look at a bunch of redwoods. Weather was pleasant, trail was shady. Parking wasn’t ideal, lot was pretty consistently full but we just created our own spot.

Gorgeous fern canyon, lush and moist.
Super easy hike, try to go early or late as it tends to attract large groups and families. Well worth the crowds though. It’s a unique canyon.

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

good hike to start if you're getting back into trail running.

Hiked in the late afternoon. Lighting amongst the towering redwoods was spectacular. Very few people there at that time.

Nice easy walk with big trees.

Good loop trail with great trees. Needs the road in upgraded. Worth the time

Nice trail near town. Easy grade and easy to follow. Great views.

This is why you visit the Redwoods!
A walk along the Giants.

This really is an amazing place to get to see the redwoods especially with children. Simple, flat, wide, easy trail. Not long but enough to see that you could spend quite a bit of time and even do the loop a few times just to enjoy the sites, sounds, and smells of the forest.

beautiful high beginners interpretive trail. It ends at a awesome spot by the creek. Nice short hike.

Interesting mostly because you are hopping on rocks and logs most of the time. Recommend wearing flip flops or wellies, not hiking shoes.

Not meaning to give this a bad review just didn’t
Know how else to leave a message. Further down Howland Hills Road towards the trail head it says “Rough narrow winding road for 6 miles Trailers not recommended” “no turnaround” so we didn’t want to enter with our RV. Very sad to miss out on this hike.
