    Highlights

    REDWOOD TREEWALK
    The Redwoods TreeWalk is located within the main Redwood Grove and starts outside the Redwoods I-Site and Visitor Centre. The TreeWalk consists of 21 suspension bridges traversing between 22 Californian coastal redwoods. It gives walkers a unique view of the native undergrowth below from up to 12 meters above the ground. At 553 meters long it allows plenty of time to appreciate the beauty of the forest that is quite different from what you experience on the ground. This is a great opportunity for both young and old who can walk un-aided to feel a sense of freedom at height without the need to wear harnesses or protective gear. Experience the walk at night where forest and fantasy come to life with the 30 exquisite David Trubridge lanterns.
