"Boasting 112,500 acres, Redwoods National Park is home to a lot of old-growth redwoods. Chief among them is “The Tall Tree,” the world’s tallest redwood. At 367 feet and 600 years of age, it is an impressive sight that should not be missed. A good portion of Highway 101 south of Crescent City passes through the park. This trail guide contains descriptions of the following trails: Trillium Falls."

The Redwood forests in CA are one of a kind and you can't really picture what it's like being next to these massive trees unless you've been there in person. The Trillium Falls Trail is an easy hike through the redwoods to see the falls. The falls aren't very big but they are very lovely. Nature photography lovers should really enjoy this trail.
