This stand of huge old growth coastal redwoods is a reminder of what this forest was thousands of years ago. This grove of immense redwoods is worth the long drive out Howland Hill Rd. and the short hike around the trail. It's a dense concentration of some of the largest trees in the area.

I absolutely loved this trail! It was easy, beautiful and had some majestic trees. The bathrooms were the most stinky bathrooms I have ever been in though, so maybe go before you get there.

If you have no other chance to see the redwoods somewhere around the Avenue of Giants then this is a good substitute. The trees here are amazing in their own right. However, this is a crowded trail and a smallish grove. A decent little stop, but if magnificent redwoods are your desire, head south.

Wow! Standing in the middle of these trees gives you perspective. It’s like standing in the middle of history.

Pretty crowded. Better come during the early morning so you can feel the place for itself.

The redwoods is nice, however the trail is busy and bit confusing. At my. Waypoint you find an awesome place to swim and sit at the water.

There are some really big trees located on this trail and more big trees located on the road the trailhead is on. Other trails on this road offer impressive trees also.

Combined River Trail with Stout Grove. Perfect sight seeing for coastal redwoods. We were so awestruck that we weren’t really hiking anyway!

Easy family hike but easily our favorite grove for the whole family. A little further off 101 and go early to miss the crowds. We parked at the River Trail head which connects to the Stout grove loop and adds a mile round trip but well worth it.

Walked this beautiful trail in the early morning, it was still and quiet. The trails winds around the massive trees and gives you a true sense of how large they really are. Get there early or the parking spots will fill up fast. The access road is pretty rough, lots of pot holes.

Did this hike years ago and is still one of my all time favorite hikes. Quite easy, but spent a couple hours meandering and looking at the trees

Awesome for family spent a long time here, great meander through the woods. Snuck down to the river- lots of surface action. Grabbing rod.

We spent far longer than expected here! It was a very popular trail. Totally flat after a small paved incline to parking lot. We explored lots of small off shoot trails that were less travelled but still well kept. Drive in is a single lane gravel road but has lots of turn outs for passing safely.
