Hart Tree Loop

Hart Tree Loop Professional Review and Guide

"The Redwood Mountain Grove represents the largest intact grove of giant sequoias in the world, and this 7-plus-mile loop leads visitors past many distinguished monarchs, as well as to lush riparian habitats along Redwood Creek and its tributaries, and to the pastoral surroundings of beautiful Hart Meadow.

Trails in the grove are relatively lightly used, thanks in part to access via a dirt road and a lack of signs pointing the way. Visitors should appreciate the opportunity to stand among the giant sequoias in quiet reverence, an experience contrary to more popular groves in the park."

"The Redwood Mountain Grove represents the largest intact grove of giant sequoias in the world. Such a distinction would seemingly make this area a tourist magnet, yet the trails are lightly used. Without a paved road to the trailhead, a plethora of signs pointing the way, or a motorized tram similar to Yosemite’s conveyance through Mariposa Grove, this grove of magnificent trees can be experienced sans crowds. Walking among the towering monarchs in relative tranquility and basking in the presence of the world’s largest living trees without hordes of tourists can be a transcendent experience on this 7-plus-mile-loop through the grove’s eastern side."

"This jaunt takes you to an old logging camp, a sequoia “log cabin,” a pretty meadow, and a waterfall, all while traveling through the largest sequoia grove left standing on the planet. The wide trail (once a dirt road) heads downhill (south), past a fire"

"This interesting jaunt takes you to an old logging camp, a sequoia “log” cabin, a pretty meadow, and a waterfall, all while traveling through the largest sequoia grove left standing on the planet.

The wide trail (once a dirt road) heads downhill (south), past a fire hydrant, and through mixed firs, pines, and giant sequoias. A view of Buena Vista Peak (Hike 43) can be had as the path rounds a turn and switchbacks. Reach the junction with the Redwood Canyon Trail at 0.3 mile and turn left (north) onto the Hart Tree Trail."

"Redwood Canyon is home to the largest concentration of giant sequoias in the world. The trail loops through the solitude of this lush canyon past hundreds of giant sequoias. Hike through the length of Tunnel Tree and visit a hollowed out sequoia with rock chimneys once used as a cabin. The return along the canyon floor parallels Redwood Creek."
