The Redwood Grove Loop at Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park is a quick, 0.8-mile, ADA-accessible and family-friendly interpretative trail that takes you through some impressive old-growth trees. The trailhead starts near the visitor center in the park's main parking lot after accessed via Highway 9 near Felton. 

Old growth coastal redwoods tower above the trail making this a pleasnat shady spot to visit on warm days.  Some great examples of old-growth burls can be seen near the Fremont Tree, a redwood named after a lieutenant who camped within the tree as he was surveying a route to the Pacific. Restrooms, picnic tables and a connector trail leading to River Trail can also be found at this point. This short, easy loop is ideal for families who are staying in Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park Campground or who are simply visiting the park and Felton for the day.
