A beautiful drive with stunning trees. Multiple places to pull over and hike or take pictures.

By far my favorite stretch of road I've ever been on, ever!

awesome scenery, i wouldn't stop at the Shrine drive thru tree again tho

This loop combines the hike to Johnson Camp with Grasshopper Road and Bull Creek South to make a 13 mile or so loop, starting from the Big Tree Area. Keep in mind there are seasonal bridges, but a fallen tree might be okay for access across the river off-season. Elevation change is pretty steadily uphill, though by no means grueling.

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

Very scenic. Amazing trees

Very nice easy stroll beautiful

Great little loop. Try to hike this during the winter or spring when the creek has some good flow going. But if you find yourself down here during the fall head up to Albee campground and pick some apples growing in the south field. Many other trails to jump off on and hike around. This part of the park is a real treasure.

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.

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

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

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.

Trailhead not officially marked as Williams Grove. Starts across the street from the day use area on the trail marked “Hidden Springs Campground.” Trail is easy to see, splits at about 1.8 miles to continue along the campground or turn into private property so follow the signs. Pretty hike along the 101. Can hear cars the whole time, but is a beautiful grove of trees.

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.

Awesome views!!

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.

beautiful drive, great easy hiking trails to do with family and little ones.
