Pets are not allowed on any of the trails within the national or state park areas. However, there are several options to enjoy a walk with a leashed pet in the park and information on how to become a BARK! Ranger.
Tall Trees Trail
Before applying for a Tall Trees Trail permit, we want to make sure it meets your needs, physical abilities, and time-frame. The Tall Trees Trail is not the only place in the park to see tall trees, there are many other great hiking options in the redwoods that don't require a permit and take less time out of your day. Going to Tall Trees will take at least 4 hours out of your day, this includes driving and hiking round-trip. The Tall Trees Trail is a 4.5-mile round-trip hike that is classified as moderate to strenuous. This is due to the steep drop going into the grove and climb returning to your vehicle, the trail drops 800 feet in the first 1.5 miles. Wherever you are hiking or visiting, be sure to learn about Leave No Trace in the redwoods.
