Just off of the highway is a large parking lot which faces a meadow that is reportedly often filled with
grazing elk. Follow the paved trail through the meadow watching for signs to Trillium Falls Trail. Listen for
the sounds of falling water as you hike the loop trail which winds through the redwood forest. Shortly
after you begin hearing the rushing water, you will reach a wooden bridge with a view of the 10-foot tall
Trillium Falls. After enjoying the falls, you can continue on the loop or, for a shorter hike, return on the
trail you started on.

Is a hike more appealing to you if there is something specific to see?
During our short visit at Redwood National Park (and the intertwined state parks), we spent some of our
time hiking. My description of what to see in the park has changed so much after being there. There's
much more to see than just the redwoods!
When you are hiking among the huge trees, it's sometimes hard to remember how near you are to the
California coast - there's actually sand and beach in the park. In fact, there's even a waterfall hidden
among the redwood trees! And for something totally different, parts of the movie Jurassic Park were
filmed in the parks - in an area filled not with redwoods, but with ferns!
What's your favorite "reward" that makes a hike worthwhile?
