Incredibly humbling to see these giants close up. Gives you some perspective of your spot on the planet. Be sure to go across the suspension bridge to see the big boys. A wonderful experience.

A beautiful short hike in the middle of lots of tall trees. The suspension bridge is cool; one person at a time! There a few places where you can get down to the river to play in the water too. Perfect hike with little kids!

About 1.5 mile hike, over suspension bridge, onto island with 1,000 year old trees which are enormous. Beautiful, extremely clear mountain water! Totally recommend!
