One mile east of the main grove parking lot, on the north side of Orr Springs Road, is a additionally acquired property purchased by the Save-the-Redwoods League. Look for a gate and two parking spots; a slight turn-off from Orr Springs Road. An unmarked trail follows a little creek into a canyon lined with old-growth redwoods, some of them pretty good-sized. A quarter-mile in the trail crosses a creek, and shortly after the old-growth redwoods end. The trail starts to deteriorate after this point, but continues for a total of 0.8 miles before entering private property.

Amazing hike with lots of wildlife and amazing trees! There wasn't any signs for the place so we were glad we were in the right spot. I was hoping for more information on the grove, but it was a wonderful hike with hardly any people. Make sure to bring bug spray. The mosquitos are brutal.

Beautiful trail through old growth redwoods. The trail is pretty short and very easy to walk - limited views due to the fact that the paths lead through a narrow canyon. But the old growth redwoods are spectacular. Worth a visit.

Fairly easy until you get to the hill at the end. There is a river crossing that I had to used a downed tree. High chance of falling in when wet, surprisingly I didn't. There are a few bigger redwoods, but you're quickly walking through second-growth redwood forest, with only the stumps of the former giants remaining. You can hike up the hill to get a nice view of area.
