Nice little trail, just off the road, which really puts into perspective the size of these beautiful trees

cool nature walk.

Flat, easy, and beautiful!


No bridge to cross the river in October. Too deep and no stones hop to get over. Had to turn back after a very short walk.

Simple stroll but beautiful nonetheless. Great to get out of the car and stretch.Good for all ages and abilities.

Great for kids, lots of fallen trees and burned out trunks to explore.

Amazingly beautiful and simple walk for adults and kids of all ages.

Simple and fast trail for beginner hikers and families. Interesting to see all the trees that survived forest fires and the elements over the decades. The burn marks add fascinating character to the trees.

We arrived before the crowds at 10am on a Saturday. The place was magical. Felt like we entered a different reality. The magic was gone once people arrived and added human noise.

This was the first trail that we did in the redwoods. Therefore, you are amazed at the size of them even though we found out that there are other trails in the area that have larger trees. There are lots of side trails weaving in and around the area.

It's just like the other trails in the area...big trees that make you look small.

It is nice if you like nature as if fallen trees and everything that nature is. The trail is very easy and scenic also the weather is nice and cool. You can see many trees including the founders tree.


Beautiful hike. I was only bummed because there was not a brochure that told us about the number.

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 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 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.

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.

Easy stroll through the redwoods with beautiful views. We did see a lot of poison oak off to the side of the trail so watch out for that.

One of the more frequented trails in the state park. Great bathrooms by the parking lot. The trail is handicap accessible. We took my mother-in-law around the loop in a transport wheelchair with no problems.

There are a number of side trips. We went to the Mahon Trail and then over the hill and under the freeway to the Women's Federation Grove and back.
