This beats Muir Woods any day! Next to know crowds and you don't have to take a long shuttle-ride to get there. The giant trees hush your footsteps and block out traffic sounds, making it a sanctuary of nature at its finest. There is no more peaceful place than among the giant redwoods.

My favorite grove. Went back to it 2 additional times.

Great grove of redwoods, lots of signs of old wildfires, some fallen trees. Rather easy to follow, but one portion - I think the part that connects to founders loop - was washed out and we had to double back to the Mahan Plaque loop. Informational plaque about the conservationists who stopped logging in the area in 1924

Beautiful flat trail just south of Founders trail. Enormous old growth giants. If you look closely to your left, you may find the albino redwood.

This trail climbs steeply up from the Avenue of the Giants to Hwy. 101. And actually goes under the highway.
