Haaaaawt, mostly in shade but still hot! Worth the climb :) satisfying work out and pretty hike. Loved the burn complex section...

Beautiful old growth Grove. Easy Trail.

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

nice trail to the river from campground... surprised by the elevation... a bit of a workout

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

Nice easy day hike up from the Horse camp and good picnic spot at the top. Cal Fire happened to be doing maintenance that day so they let us in the firewatch tower!

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.

This was a 13.8 mile out and back if you start and end at the fire road trail head. The trail head is NOT well marked. Follow the Mattole Rd. west to just past the turn off for Albee Creek campground. Look for the fire road on the left after you cross the Bull Creek bridge. Take the fire road to the locked gate and park there. This trail is a little boring until you reach the fire lookout. The ascent is pretty tough. You can skip the fire look out by taking the Johnson Camp trail at about 4 miles and loop back to the Big Trees day use area.
The peak was in the clouds on the day we hiked so I can only assume the views would have been fantastic.
