An Easy Walk Through A Famous Grove

This 1.5 mile (2km) loop is located ten minutes drive north of Orick on the Bald Hills Road. It is a popular first (or last) walk in the redwoods for visitors because it is on the southern end of the park.

Many people complete the whole loop and enjoy visiting the plaque dedicated to Lady Bird Johnson - who in her role as First Lady - actively promoted the protection and creation of natural habitats. An descriptive interpretive brochure is available at the trailhead, and during the summer daily ranger-led educational walks are provided.

The 2.5 mile drive up Bald Hills Roads to the parking area is windy, bumpy, and narrow - care must be taken because heavy trucks use that road. Because of the road's conditions RVs and trailers are not advised. The parking area has limited space and it often is full from summer mornings to late afternoon. Parking on the side of Bald Hills Road is not safe and not allowed.

Vault toilets are provided at the parking lot.
