Visitors are invited to walk, Hike, Bike Ride, Camp & Horseback Ride on over 200 miles of trails that weave through a variety of environments, including prairies, old-growth redwood forests and beaches.
In late 2006, naturalists discovered a new world's tallest tree near the original Tall Tree, whose discovery led to the creation of Redwood National Park in the 1960s. Located in a remote grove, the new titlist is called Hyperion and stands 379.1 feet tall, nearly six stories taller than the Statue of Liberty. Road access to the original Tall Tree Grove trailhead, after being closed a year for repair, reopened in 2014.
