Amazing trees, the trunks are HUGE!

Easy stroll through the redwoods with beautiful views. We did see a lot of poison oak off to the side of the trail so watch out for that.

Short hikes along Avenue of the Giants. Awesome trees, beware of poison oak!

One of the more frequented trails in the state park. Great bathrooms by the parking lot. The trail is handicap accessible. We took my mother-in-law around the loop in a transport wheelchair with no problems.

There are a number of side trips. We went to the Mahon Trail and then over the hill and under the freeway to the Women's Federation Grove and back.

Magical place: vivid colors, shiny red leaves on the ground, gigantic trees, ancient atmosphere.

What an amazing little trail. Lush green sorrel carpets the forest and only the trail is bare. Giant redwoods shoot to the sky, and some fallen lay about as part of the ground's landscape. You feel like you've been miniaturized. We skipped the Redwood national forest to come to the Humboldt area instead. The place is basically yours.

Nice quiet hike. Got lost did the loop twice, so our hike ended up being 4 miles.

Easy little meandering trail. Lots of poison oak this time of year.

Any hike among the Redwoods is one to be cherished. These trees truly take your breath away and leave you speaking in hushed voices, if you speak at all. It's great for all ages and abilities. Do not miss this opportunity among the giants

This beats Muir Woods any day! Next to know crowds and you don't have to take a long shuttle-ride to get there. The giant trees hush your footsteps and block out traffic sounds, making it a sanctuary of nature at its finest. There is no more peaceful place than among the giant redwoods.

Did this trail a couple of weeks ago. It was short but very amazing. It looked like a setting for a fairy tale. Loved it!

Well worth the climb

This is a great place to get out of the car and stretch your legs for a few miles. The redwoods are amazing and the trail is very easy.

Beautiful old growth Grove. Easy Trail.

Beautiful, super flat trail. Tons of ferns and shadiness. So fun to look up at these giants.

My favorite grove. Went back to it 2 additional times.

Great grove of redwoods, lots of signs of old wildfires, some fallen trees. Rather easy to follow, but one portion - I think the part that connects to founders loop - was washed out and we had to double back to the Mahan Plaque loop. Informational plaque about the conservationists who stopped logging in the area in 1924

Small little loop, but didn't see much of the river. Mostly a little creek and too much brush to see the river it flows into. Decent redwoods, easy walking!

My favorite redwood grove. The trees are spaced just far enough apart for you to appreciate how tall the redwoods really are.

Beautiful flat trail just south of Founders trail. Enormous old growth giants. If you look closely to your left, you may find the albino redwood.

This trail climbs steeply up from the Avenue of the Giants to Hwy. 101. And actually goes under the highway.
