“My wife and I recently went on a hike here. We went on the trail called ” valley of the Giants” what a beautiful trail! I can only begin to imagine how old some of the trees are for how huge they are. I enjoyed how the trail followed the river and covered varying grades of terrain. We also came across a yank yank ( mini woodpecker ) on a branch high in a tree.” – Ryan, Google review
