A short but impressive walk through the world’s tallest trees. Besides redwoods, there are rhododendrons, giant ferns, and moss-hung maple trees, as well as access to wild Redwood Creek. The drive to preserve this grove led to the establishment of Redwood National Park. A permit is required to visit the Tall Trees Grove and is available free of charge from the visitor center just south of Orick. Created in 1968, Redwood National Park is tiny as national parks go, and it is split into four isolated subsections, surrounded by state parks and private land. Nonetheless, it is still possible to find something approximating backcountry in the large southern end of the park, which encompasses the lower drainage of Redwood Creek.
