#1 – Franklin K. Lane Grove

This short, fifteen-minute loop trail will allow you to stretch your legs and get a feel for the “magic” of the redwood forest.

In summer, notice a distinct cooling of temperatures as you enter and stroll beneath the forest canopy.

This grove of redwoods was set aside in 1928 to honor Franklin K. Lane, the Secretary of the Interior under President Wilson. He was also the first volunteer President of Save-the-Redwoods League.
