This is one of the most popular trails in Redwood National Park. The staff at Kuchel Visitor Center often recommend it to visitors since it’s short, level, and close to the visitor center. Unusually for a major redwood attraction, this trail is in a redwood upland environment at 1200 feet above sea level. Because of its elevation, the grove is often in the clouds and gets a lot more fog than the lowland groves. There’s a lush ground-cover of ferns, but the understory is open and the trail’s position high on a hillside affords some nice views of the forest. Rhododendrons are common and bloom in early June.
