If you are looking for things to do in Death Valley National Park, be prepared-there are a ton. Covering an area nearly the size of the entire state of Connecticut, Death Valley National Park will keep you busy for days with the amount of exploring there is to do.

It’s rare that you can have a family-friendly hike in a National Park that is quiet and without crowds, but the Tall Trees Grove trail in Redwood National Park is one such rare find. The Tall Trees Grove, which is controlled by the number of permits issued by the park rangers each day, is a perfect way to spend a few hours. Not only does it include an isolated stand of tall redwood trees, it also has access to a peaceful riverfront. You can also use this trail as a base for backcountry camping in the vast wilderness.
We believe that Redwood National Park is a beautiful and diverse part to visit, and you won’t be disappointed if you add the Tall Trees Trail to your itinerary while inside the park!
