Boy Scout Tree Trail

Boy Scout Tree Trail

This trail is part of the larger complex of Redwood National and State Parks, which spans Del Norte and Humboldt counties, and includes 44,000 acres of old-growth redwood forest and 37 miles of pristine coastline. You can find more information on all our trails and other recreational opportunities at www.nps.gov/redw. Allow at least half a day to enjoy this outstanding trail, which leads you deep into the old-growth forest before concluding at Fern Falls. Slight changes in elevation give a different perspective on the redwoods and allow a peek into the dense canopy. At 2½ miles from the trailhead, an unmarked but prevalent spur trail leads up to the Boy Scout Tree (a double redwood), so named because of its discovery by a local troop leader.

Vertical Gain or Loss: 300 Feet

Trail Distance: 2.8 Miles One-Way
