360° VR Panoramas of the Redwood National and State Parks
The Lady Bird Johnson Grove
Bald Hills Road, Redwood National Park, California

The Bald Hills Road climbs steeply from the highway near Orick past an abandoned lumber mill then through second growth forest. Near the top of the grade there is a parking area for a short and easy trail leading to a commemorative plaque in this high elevation redwood grove.

The grove was named for first lady Lady Bird Johnson, who dedicated the new Redwood National Park here in 1967. It is best seen in the morning when a dense fog blows through the forest, accentuating the majestic height of the trees, and fog-drip glistens on the huge sword ferns, huckleberry, and oxalis.
