A walk among the hushed stands of 300-foot-tall ancient giants in Richardson Grove State Park is a sensory journey back in time. Many of the trees are more than 1,000 years old, and among the world’s tallest. Save the Redwoods League recently protected Twin Trees forest, which buffers this jewel of a park. The Toumey Trail will lead you through magical Richardson Grove and Twin Trees.
