We love a good redwood and this 80 year old grove has all the great sequoia character. There are so many redwoods planted together it’s like a picture book. And even after a mere 80 years, they are impressively tall. The walk is quite short...More

This grove of redwoods is large and pleasant to walk through, with the river running past on one side. Worth a quick visit if you're in the area.

The redwoods are eerily lovely but, it is a tiny patch of forest down 5km of unpaved road. If it is muddy, then you may want to avoid the route down the road. If you are already in the area visiting the nearby waterfalls then...More
