Tree are very huge. Good hike

the trees are indescribably beautiful

awesome trail. highly recomend

Nice and beautiful hike and the scout tree is very impressive! The actual trail length is 5.6 miles.

very muddy on parts. so many mushrooms are out and flowers are starting to bloom.

One of my favorite hikes for trees. Miles of old growth redwoods. Otherworldly. Hiked with 12 year old daughter. She loved it.

I could feel the dinosaurs watching me. Beautiful redwoods, ferns, and mushrooms.

One of the best. Magical, silent, gorgeous. It was drizzling when I went so pretty slippery on the roots across the trail and one section was very muddy, but definitely worth it. Go early to miss the crowds.

All the hype is right. Moderate because many large roots are on the trail. The absolute quit was deafening. The trees awe blinding. One of our best ever.

Incorrect information. There is no way to this trail from the indicated start without wading through a deep creek. WTF???

The boy scout tree is one of the oldest and biggest redwood in the Redwood NP. It took me 2.5 hrs to reach the tree but only 1.5hrs to get back. Most of the trails full of tree roots and climbing in the beginning so it is a bit strenuous in my opinion. In the middle of the trail has many muddy steps, I can foresee it gets really slippery during winter rainy seasons. Very rewarding feeling when u reach the big tree. Love it!

perfect length for half day hike. Only complaint is that so many others like it too.

Hiked this from Elk Valley Rd to the Boy Scout Trail, maybe 9 miles back and forth. Starts off with a good climb for about 20-25 minutes then mellows. Completely shaded by some serious old growth redwoods, very impressive. But more people drive up it than hike it so it is more of a car road than trail. Only when you get to the Boy Scout Trail is when it is only a foot path. Definitely go into that.

Great trail just off the beaten path. Small climb for different perspective of Redwoods.

This trail is like a buy 1 get 5 free deal, but the 1 is also free. All you have to do is survive the treacherous Howland Hill road....which turns out is easily done in a Mini Cooper. Stay away from this road if you like scenic drives on a well maintained dirt road under 20mph. The trail’s 2.8 mile stretch has enough variation to keep you engaged and amazed the entire time. There are indeed sections where the roots beneath your feet demand your attention, so be sure to take stops to lift you head, as to not miss the inspiring scenery around you. A few brave slugs may stop you to say hi, and the waterfall at the end seems more like a familiar friend rather than an attraction. If you choose to take the trail to the end and back, it will take you right up to the edge of fatigue, leaving you with a sense of accomplishment and deserved satisfaction. Highly recommend.

Nice hike... the “falls” at the end weren’t anything to write home about, there was also trash all near the falls.
