Grove of the Patriarchs Loop Trail

Grove of the Patriarchs Loop Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Some of the biggest, oldest trees in the Washington Cascades stand tall in the Grove of the Patriarchs. These silent old men of moss tower overhead, with a few lying down to show us just how massive the trunks really are.

The Grove resides in a low, boggy area across the Ohanapecosh River, so you’ll need to cross a sweet little suspension bridge to get there, offering you a chance to enjoy a bit of adventure on this simple little trail. Youngsters typically love the bridge, and kids of all ages marvel at the massive trees. Note: The floods of 2006 severely damaged the footbridge leading to the Grove. Call ahead to find out if it’s been repaired before you visit."

A short trail that is in easy hike from a rather crowded parking lot, it winds beside the river to a shorter segment of boardwalk that winds among beautiful old growth cedars and redwoods. The trail is mostly level, with a few short inclines and is wide and well maintained. There were points of congestion, but mostly by other people interested in a quiet hike through the grove. Several good photographic spots of trees and the river were present along the trail.
