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.

Beautiful, short trail with some stunning trees.
Started trail from Women’s Foundation Grove across the Eel River. Parked and crossed a foot bridge. Although path is dotted on the map, meet up with Roosevelt Grove Loop isn’t well marked - there are three piles of rocks leading into the trees. If you miss it and keep walking, you will come to a second and smaller foot bridge. There is another entrance to the Roosevelt Grove Loop here on the right.

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 trail.

Amazing trees, the trunks are HUGE!

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.

Short hikes along Avenue of the Giants. Awesome trees, beware of poison oak!

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.

Magical place: vivid colors, shiny red leaves on the ground, gigantic trees, ancient atmosphere.

Any hike among the Redwoods is one to be cherished. These trees truly take your breath away and leave you speaking in hushed voices, if you speak at all. It's great for all ages and abilities. Do not miss this opportunity among the giants

Did this trail a couple of weeks ago. It was short but very amazing. It looked like a setting for a fairy tale. Loved it!

An easy walk around an old growth. Parking is pretty limited but understandable for a very short trail.

A must do!!!

Niiiice loop. Had to do it twice. You can cross a creek on the back side of the loop and hook up with the awesome Bull Creek Trail which will take u through some outstanding, more remote groves and u can cross the bridge on the Eel River about 5 miles down and be at the Humboldt State Park Visitor center.

Absolutely beautiful redwood grove! A little harder to locate than others on Ave of the Giants. Grove initially preserved from a donation from John D Rockefeller. Gorgeous big redwoods, huge fallen ones you can climb onto to get a sense of scale. Some had fallen very recently this winter. Access to the river was nice, although the river bridge is out. Connects to longer trails if you're in the mood

Small little loop, but didn't see much of the river. Mostly a little creek and too much brush to see the river it flows into. Decent redwoods, easy walking!

My favorite redwood grove. The trees are spaced just far enough apart for you to appreciate how tall the redwoods really are.

This is the finest trail on earth. The Rockefeller Loop Trail contains the largest ancient old growth redwoods anywhere. You will pass one enormous redwood after another. The ground cover is lovely ferns, and halfway around you will meet Bull Creek. Walk down to the creek and take a look around. Nowhere is more beautiful.

Some crummy patches of road on the way in - but worth it. Nice easy stroll thru some giants. Less popular than the Founders grove- so less trafficked . So quiet your ears ring. A few feet off the trail is a path to the creek below. Worth checking out for some lovely creek side tree viewing .
