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.

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

Very scenic. Amazing trees

Very nice easy stroll beautiful

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

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.

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!!

Amazing trail. Beauty beyond your imagination. It's like a whole different world. You feel so small among the Giants...

Amazing trees, the trunks are HUGE!
